                             Virtual Face-to-Face in Real-Time!
                 Many LLI Summer Classes are being taught online with Zoom
 During this COVID-19 crisis, many LLI classes have shifted online using Zoom. Zoom allows students to hear and see the
 instructor as they present their class using videos, powerpoints, and lectures. Zoom also offers students the opportunity
 to interact with the instructor and other students—asking questions and joining in discussions. All of this is during real-
 time, helping you stay connected.
 It’s Easy to Zoom! A few days before your class, your instructor will send you a link to your class. You will need to have
 a working microphone built into your device or headphones with a microphone. If you do not, you can use the free
 phone conference feature. You will need to visit: https://zoom.us/download and download the Zoom application onto
 your computer. It only takes a few minutes. We recommend that you do this in advance to make sure all your computer
 components are working.
 Note: We plan to run classes online until Montgomery College makes the decision to return to face-to-face classes.
 If this happens, those unable to attend in person will still be able to take the class online.
