Accessing your Zoom class via MyCLL

You will access your Zoom class(es) via MyCLL (the same system you use to browse and book classes). All your CLL bookings, Zoom class access and any associated class resources are located here.

We have put together an easy to follow step-by-step guide for you. Please read this carefully: MyCLL student guide.

You can also watch a short video tutorial 'Accessing classes via MyCLL' in the 'Useful Resources' section.

 

Zoom

To take part you will need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with an internet connection. A webcam will allow you to see all your fellow students at one time. Headphones/earbuds are also recommended for Zoom classes, but not essential.

Our classes are delivered live via Zoom. The classes are not recorded. Please see the 'Useful Resources' section to watch a short tutorial on 'Getting started with Zoom'.

You do NOT need to sign up to a Zoom account, the University has invested in this as the means of online delivery and as such is the owner of the access to Zoom. Access to the Zoom lessons will be automatic. You need only download the free Zoom app.

We have created Zoom guides to get you started. Please download the appropriate version for whichever device you intend to use for your class:

Zoom student guide_PC or laptop
Zoom student guide_ipad or iphone
Zoom student guide_android version

 

Zoom Training

For those who are brand new to Zoom and online learning we offer short training sessions, on request. At these sessions, you will have the chance to test your home equipment is working before the class starts and receive some basic training from a CLL member of staff on the key functions you will use. These sessions may be one-to-one or in small groups.  Please contact us to request this training and we will arrange a suitable time.

We are offering our long-standing, credit-bearing, online Genealogy and Creative Writing (Blaze) classes via Myplace, the University's virtual learning environment. This is a user-friendly platform and all you need is access to a computer, tablet or laptop with an internet connection. These classes provide lessons using downloadable learning materials and are designed as an immersive learning experience where students can interact with each other if they choose. There is regular tutor input via online forums and 'live chats'.
