Ready to learn some new skills? Joining a live online class on Amphy is a great way to broaden your horizons.
Whether it’s your first time using the site or you’ve been using Amphy for years, you can book your next online session in a matter of minutes. Here’s the whole process laid out step-by-step.
Step 1: Find a Class
If you’re hoping to learn a specific skill, type the keyword in the search bar at the top of the website to see what classes are available. Or, if you don’t have anything specific in mind, you can browse popular classes and see if any of them catch your eye.
There are endless options of classes to pick from. Whether you’d like to learn a second language, improve your skills in the kitchen, or find something to keep your kids busy during summer break, you’re likely to find something you’ll enjoy.
Don’t have the money to pay for a class? No problem. There are plenty of courses that you can take completely free of charge.
Once you’ve found a class that interests you, click on the title to view the summary.
Step 2: Read the Summary Carefully
Before you take another step forward, read the class’s description thoroughly. Titles can be misleading. You should know exactly what you’re getting into before booking a session.
Take note of the following important information:
Some classes will require specific materials, so make sure you have time to obtain those before the first session.
Step 3: Book Your Class
Once you’ve decided on a class, you’re all set to book it!
If you don’t already have an account at this point, you will need to create one. You can sign in with Google to make the process quicker.
Choose a date on the drop-down list on the right side of the page. Then, click “request to book.” You’ll be able to make your payment from there, if necessary.
After that, you will be able to confirm your place in the class.
Step 4: Get Yourself Prepared
Now that you have booked your session, you should make sure you’re prepared well in advance.
You will need to download Zoom on your computer. Nearly all live online classes rely on this app. Fortunately, most browsers and operating systems will support it. It’s completely free, too, and won’t take up much space on your computer.
Be sure to collect any materials you’ll need for your class ahead of time. You won’t want to be rushing around at the last minute.
Once you’re all set, all that’s left to do is wait for your class to meet!
Step 5: Show Up on Time!
You don’t want to keep your instructor (or classmates, if you have a group class) waiting, so it’s essential to show up on time.
Mark the date on your calendar. You can even set an alarm to help remind you.
You should expect to get an email from your instructor shortly before your class begins. The email will contain a link to the Zoom meeting. Once you click that link, you’ve successfully joined your class!
Before You Go
Education is timelessly valuable whether you’re still in primary school or a senior who’s just retired.
Joining online classes is a great way to keep your brain active and learn some fun, practical skills. The best part is, you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your home.
The process of signing up is pretty straightforward. There are plenty of free options to choose from, so why not give it a try?
