How will classes take place online?
Your live online sessions will take place using Zoom or Google Meet.
Some courses also use Google Classroom, an online learning platform where tutors can put course resources and communicate with their students.
The information and guidance videos on these pages will help you make the most of your online classes. Please click on the Online Learning link above to see all the articles.
What information will you receive before your class starts?
City Lit will send you two reminder emails with more details about your online course. We will send these three days before your course starts and one day before your course starts.
If you enrol on the day your course starts, you will receive an email shortly after you enrol.
If your course will use Google Classroom, the reminder email will include information about how to join.
If your live session will take place in Zoom, you will receive a separate email with a link and password for your Zoom session about 3 hours before each session starts. You will have a different link and password for each session of your course.
Please make sure you check your email, including your Spam/Junk folders.
We recommend that you read the guidance available on these pages before your first session.
How do I access my sessions?
Live session using Zoom
You do not need an account to join the live session in Zoom.
We will email you the Zoom session link and password about 3 hours before each session.
Each session of your course will have a unique link and password.
You can find more information about Zoom on this Zoom - basics with video page.
Live session using Google Meet
You do not need an account to join a live session in Google Meet. You will need a link, which you will receive before your first session either from your tutor or from the department. Sometimes tutors post the Google Meet live session links in the Google Classroom.
You can find more information about Google Meet on this Google Meet page.
To access your Google Classroom you will need to log in using your City Lit student account. Detailed instructions are available on this Logging in to Google Classroom page.
We look forward to seeing you in class online!
