What is Video Conferencing?

Video conferencing is a way to meet and talk with people through the internet. Participants can see and hear one another and take advantage of special features such as screen sharing.

What do learners actually do on video conferences?

The two apps that RCS uses are Google Meet and Zoom. In many ways, these apps are similar, but certain details differ. Students use these tools to join their classes virtually to engage in large group, small group, or independent learning. 

The video below reviews expectations and tips for online learning meetings.

For any technical issues, please follow this procedure.

  1. Go to the Remote Learning Support Form

  2. Fill out the form with as many specific details as you can.

  3. Once you click "Submit", it can take up to 24 hours to get a response, perhaps more if there are a large number of requests for support.  If this wait will impact your student's participation in school, an email to the student's teacher is appreciated.
