How to access Zoom for online SEESA Classes
Using an app called Zoom, SEESA is bringing you live classes with the instructors you know. It's just like going to class but with the advantage of social distancing, something we all have to take seriously.
There are a few easy steps you'll need to do to attend the online, live classes. You can hear and see the other members, ask the instructor questions. and enjoy a chance to socialize with your class mates.
Follow these steps:
1. You must download the Zoom app. Below, you'll find URLs appropriate to your laptop, tablet or smart/iphone.
