Accessing your live virtual classes

Teachers at Mountain Song Community School use Google Meet and Zoom for their live virtual class meetings. The tutorials below will show you how to access your teacher’s class meeting, and how to overcome common problems with video conferencing.

Google Meet

Zoom

How will students access Zoom?

Students will be given a Zoom link for each of their classes in Google Classroom. They can access the class Zoom meeting by clicking the link and following the prompts. Additional information on how to access Zoom can be found here.

When will students switch over to using Zoom?

Your student’s teacher may decide to begin using Zoom as soon as Monday, January 11th. Contact your child’s teacher for more information.

Should my student create a Zoom login?

No. Zoom’s terms of service prohibit anyone under the age of 16 from creating a Zoom login. Students do not require a login to participate in Zoom meetings, nor should they access a class Zoom meeting using a Zoom account that belongs to a parent or another adult.

Does my student need to have the Zoom app installed on their learning device?

No. Students can access their class Zoom meeting using Google Chrome. However, if the app is already installed on their device, they may have access to more features.

Where can I find instructions on how to access Zoom?

Zoom provides documentation on how to access a Zoom meeting using the web browser and the app on several device types here. Additional resources and support can be found on the MSCS Tech Help page.

Is there an alternative to Zoom?

Certain families have family members whose devices cannot run Zoom due to the secure nature of their work. Please contact your child’s teacher to let them know that your student cannot use Zoom on their device.
