Basic virtual class rules:
Be respectful of everyone's online attendance. No profanity, or obscene gestures will be allowed.
Everyone's microphone will be muted automatically at the start of the conference. This is necessary to prevent feedback and massive sound input into the classroom.
Try to attend the online class from a quiet noise free environment. Barking dogs, fans, ceiling fans and disruptive background noise will be heard by the class.
Desktop users, try lowering your speaker volume to prevent feedback of your speaker sound being heard by your own microphone.
If you need to speak or ask a question during the virtual class, you will be able to raise your virtual hand by clicking the hand icon as shown below.
Please be on time. Allow yourself about ten minutes to make sure you have everything in order. Camera check, microphone check, app download and install check, if needed for mobile phone users.
Hinojosa Driving School, LLC is a partner with Life After Solutions, LLC and will be using the partner servers for this segment of the virtual class.
