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

How to add any webpage to home screen on iPad (or iPhone)

A great way to save the LifeQuest webpage with the list of classes. Each term you can delete the icon on the home screen and add the new term.

The share icon can look many different ways. The most common are: a box with an arrow going out of it, an arrow swooping to the side, or sometimes a triangle with dots at each endpoint and one side open.
