We’ll also be offering an opportunity for a tech test a week prior to the workshop date for those who want a practice run with zoom and to make sure they feel comfortable with their setup.
Q: Why do I need a Google account for class?

Students will also use Google Drive to Upload and Download materials for work and review. If you do not have a Google account, you can set one up by following these steps.
