Hi Everyone! Welcome to 2015!
I hope it is off to a very good start for each of you!
Wheels are turning slowly for me as I'm trying to find the best and easiest way to begin online classes! My schedule allows for Thursday evenings and most of us are accustomed to the third week of each month - so, my creative juices came up with the ThirdsDay Class! No, that is not a typo! It is the Third Thursday of each month! A bit tricky to say, but hopefully hard to forget!!
Classes will be offered through FreeConferenceCall.com. It is recommended to download the desktop application for FreeConferenceCall in advance to ensure expedited access at the scheduled meeting time. Click this link freeconferencecall.com to download and install this application and configure your computer for these shared sessions. You will find a technical support phone number to call if you have problems.
There will be a free "Practice Class" on Thurs. Feb. 5th (NOT a ThirdsDay!) at 6:00pm. Besides a trial & error opportunity, this will be an orientation to future classes, fees, etc.. I'll report on Survey Monkey feedback and we can take a vote on class starting time. 6pm or 6:30pm - be thinking about that!
Our first real ThirdsDay Class will be Feb. 19th!!!
Also, I plan to eventually figure out how to record these classes and offer recordings for those who miss or cannot participate at this specific time. I apologize that I'm not a 'whiz' at this technology, and I will probably make mistakes until I get it right!
The Meeting ID is 148-949-152. This ID number will get you to my "Meeting Wall" from where I'll be able to share my computer screen with all participants. You may want headphones with a microphone if your computer speakers & mic are not adequate. Participants can also communicate with typed messages in the Chat box at the bottom left of the screen.
I will be practicing this myself this weekend (recruiting Ronnie as a participant), so I will send another news-blog if I discover any helpful tips or suggestions. Please email me if you discover any as well! (email@example.com)
Mark your calendars, plan an evening at home, get comfy and prepare to connect!
