For all online participation, it is the responsibility of each attendee to have the correct equipment and internet connection to attend BPI/CDM activities.

  • Tablets and cell phones are not suitable for any online function as they are not stable enough.  Drops are very common and audio can be of poor quality.
  • Lap tops and other more stable computers as well as a headset with a mic is recommended.
  • The teacher(s) or reading control will not hold back a class or reading space, should an attendee experience technical difficulty.
  • It is each participant’s responsibility to create a personal sanctuary without distraction and/or background noise.  Attending classes or reading spaces in a car, coffee shop or other public place is not appropriate for online participation.
  • Should the participant’s lack of appropriate equipment and /or grounded sanctuary create a disturbance or disruption during the class or reading space, the attendee will see his/her mic privilege revoked.
  • We are committed to creating a sanctuary for all to find their own space and honor other’s finding their own space as well.

ONLINE CLASSROOM HINTS:

  • It is best to click on the zoom link about 1/2 hour prior to class start time to make sure your speakers and mic levels are set correctly.
  • Useing a headset to talk with us online can help with sound.  If sound is a big issue, some online students type in any questions or anything they want to share. There is a chat window available in the online classroom.
  • Mute your MIC when you are not talking.
