Helpful tutorials for the best online class experience

We are all at different comfort levels with our online classes but online classes are here to stay! Yes, one day, they will be held alongside in-person classes. We want you to have the best experience and recognize that some of the language used for online classes is new to you. On this page are various definitions or videos to help you get the most out of your online class. We will be adding more as we learn more about what skills are needed. 

See below for videos about LifeQuest orientation, Facebook tips, Zoom instructions and general internet tips.

How to Refresh/Reload your browser

What does it mean when staff ask you to "Refresh or Reload"?

On Facebook, if you arrive to the website early, class might not be live yet and you might need to refresh your page. (Refresh and reload are interchangeable terms and allows new material to come onto the webpage.)

The refresh or reload icon looks like a circle with an arrow going clockwise.

Watch videos below to see how to do this on a website on a computer. The video underneath that shows how to refresh a website on a cell phone or tablet.
