We hope you are settling in well and getting ready to resume classes on April 6. We have heard that many students are concerned about the technical aspects of online learning, including Zoom, which will be used in many courses to provide a synchronous lecture or recitation.
In case you need help learning to use Zoom, or want to test your home internet connection or computer setup before the first day of online class, we will offer several Zoom training sessions for MAE students this week:
- Tuesday 03/31/20 @ 1pm ET, run by Matt Ford
- Tuesday 03/31/20 @ 8pm ET, run by Ben Finio
- Wednesday 04/01/20 @ 1pm ET, run by Matt Ford
- Wednesday 04/01/20 @ 8pm ET, run by Ben Finio
Please note that these sessions are specific to using Zoom. They are NOT to answer questions about the grading policy, exams, etc. Such questions can be submitted here, and responses are posted to the MAE student FAQ.
Depending on how many people attend each session, our ability to help troubleshoot individual technical issues may be limited. If you have a technical problem (e.g. can’t get your sound to work, your internet is too slow, etc.) that cannot be resolved during the meeting, you should consult https://it.cornell.edu/students. If you still have questions, or if you are aware of students lacking necessary hardware or internet access who are not already being helped, please email Kae-Lynn Wilson (email@example.com).
