In order to participate in the class students must have access to these programs as well as the technology to video chat. Please make sure you have access to these programs on whatever device(s) you will be using. Make an account for those sites if necessary. Please make sure this is done a few days prior to the start of class.
Email GrandPrixDrivingSchool@gmail.com if you require any assistance. These programs work differently depending on what device you are using so if possible test them out or have multiple options to work with. Ex, Zoom on your phone, and Nearpod on your Laptop. We will use several simultaneously so a split screen or multiscreen system is a requirement*. You will need to view the instructor in zoom and access slides in Nearpod simultaneously. This cannot be done from just a phone or tablet. You can split the screen on your computer or laptop. Or use a two device system like phone and tablet. Make sure all your electronics are fully charged and plugged in.
If you do not have these capabilities, please email the office to discuss your options.
Below is a sample split screen view. The instructor visible on one side and Nearpod open on the other.
HOW TO LOGON
Students will be emailed the login information a few days prior to the start of class.
Your camera must remain on the entire time. Your face must be visible in the center of the screen. Consider placement carefully so that you are not backlit. You must have a working microphone that at times you will be required to use on occasion.
