Using Zoom

In an attempt to keep everyone safe during the COVID pandemic the St. John Valley Senior College is offering its classes on the internet using Zoom. Anyone with a computer (desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone) and a internet connection should be able to take part in our Zoom classes. To attend a Zoom class you must register in advance with your email address so that we can send you and email invitation with a link to the class.

If this is the first time you are using Zoom there are a few things you should do in advance to become familiar with Zoom.
