Classes and Lectures are taught Live using a video conferencing platform such as Zoom. There is also an online virtual classroom where you can access recordings, handouts, participate and share assignments in the forum and submit projects. To access the online classroom and video conference link, login to your BG5BI account and click on Subscriptions. This is where you will find the online classroom for all courses and materials you have purchased.
When attending Live via a video conferencing platform (Live Zoom Room), communication is established between the instructor and the students by means of:
* Speaking: Instructors and students have the chance to speak one at a time, and everyone participating will listen in through their computer’s speaker (or phone). A microphone is needed to participate. Please use a headset and join in a quiet location for the best experience possible.
* Writing: Participants can send public instant chat messages that will be viewed by everyone, or a private instant message directly to the instructor that is not viewed by everyone.
When logged into the online classroom (Website Classroom), communication is established between the instructor and the students by means of:
* Writing: A class forum is available for each class where Students complete weekly assignments and can share and discuss topics weekly. There is also an area to submit a project if it is required for course completion
* Viewing: Watching slides, videos and notations/demonstrations that the instructor adds during class. Viewing handouts, recordings, and forum posts from other students after class.
