Essential Technical Information

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR ONLINE CLASSES

All audio classes are online through WEBEX or ZOOM.
Prerequisite for online classes is one workshop with Catherine, one semester of classes at the School, or an Introduction Home Study course.

USING WEBEX
  1. Download WEBEX software (see links below).
  2. Download and read this webexhowto
  3. Go through the checklist below.

Please download the software as soon as possible, and go on WEBEX at least 10 minutes before the first class to familiarize yourself with the interface. Link to Download WEBEX Software

Checklist for WEBEX
  1. When you log on, make sure you select “Call using computer”
  2. Do the “Speaker/Microphone Test” and make sure the volume slider is all the way up on both the speaker and the microphone
  3. If you’re using a headset, test it to make sure it’s working
  4. If you have problems and can’t be heard or hear, use the “chat” window at the bottom right of the screen to let us know
  5. Go on at least five minutes early so you can work out any technical issues you might have
  6. Don’t make the WEBEX window full screen—use it at the smallest size you can see clearly
  7. Close all other applications—open applications use memory and it affects your sound
  8. Turn off video

A strong wired connection, with a high quality headset or excellent mic/speakers on your computer, will give you the best experience.

Using a VOIP number (like Google or Skype) or mobile or cordless phone—if you have a weak or fluctuating wireless connection—may produce echoing, static and dropouts, low volume, etc—that will give you a bad experience and affect the whole class.

If you have any technical questions after you have gone through the material on this page, please email info@schoolofimages.com as soon as possible before your first class.
