ACRES’ online courses will be taught in real time using the video platform
Google Meet, supported by other online resources. To ensure you get the
most out of the course and can fully participate in the sessions you will
interact with your tutor and other students through speaking, listening
and the chat function, as well as being able to see each other via the
video links, though you can turn off your camera and microphone at any
time. You will therefore need to have access to either a laptop, computer
or portable device (eg tablet or phone) (this ideally needs to be less than
5 years old), with a camera / webcam and microphone, as well as a good
broadband / Wi-Fi connection.
Though not a prerequisite, we would advise that you create a separate
email account for your online learning prior to the start of the course and
let the ACRES’ Office and your tutor know the address.This will be more
secure and also allow you to share your email address with other students
on the course to enhance your learning experience, without disclosing
your personal information.
At the start of the course and before each lesson your tutor will send you
an invitation with a link to join the class and any further information
including resources and equipment you will need for the lesson.
There is a video on our website - which you can
view here - which explains how to use Google
Meet, what equipment you need and how to
use the different functions.
