Our group video chats will be on the 2nd and 4th Sundays from 7-9PM EST. It is possible that the dates may change periodically, if I am out of town on a ministry trip or if something comes up. In which case, I will notify you on the Level 1 Facebook page.
Currently, the scheduled chats are located on the calendar in Moodle for Levels 1 and 3. I also posted all the dates for level 2 in your level 2 Facebook page. These may still be subject to change, but for now, that is the schedule.
Side note: It is wise for everyone to keep notifications "on" for the Level 1 page, even after you will have graduated, as I will make general school announcements to all students and alumni in the level 1 page and not always copy and paste it to Level 2 and alumni pages.
Please post to Moodle, your question or discussion idea at least 3 days before the chat.
All levels, please simply insert your questions into Moodle, in the appropriate place. No need to email it to anyone.
You do NOT need to send your AP your phone chat question.
If you post your question that day, it will be discussed on another chat time. Please post them at least 3 days before.
If you try to email me, write in Facebook or call about something before the chat or are having difficulty getting on the chat, please know that I will either be in prayer right before the chat or during the chat I will be focusing on what people are saying and will not be able to look at email. More than likely, I would not see your email, FB message or hear your phone message until the next morning. If you have difficulty getting on the chat, please refer back to this page's instructions or go to our FB page to seek the help of another student (realistically, though, they should be on the chat too, not on FB:)). You'll get the hang of it soon enough.
I think the chats are just about everyone's favorite part of the course. We all find so much support, encouragement, ideas and information there.
Our first phone chat in January, will be primarily dedicated to going over the guidelines page for you. Please try to be in-front of a computer while you listen to the first call, if at all possible, so we can go over everything. Again, I encourage you to please try to read this entire guidelines page 2-3 times before the chat. Also, write down questions as you go through the pages. So, on the chat, we may answer or clarify for you. Thanks!
Again, it is very simple to get onto the chat/video, simply click on the link or call the number that you'll see posted on your respective level's Facebook page. I'll probably post the invitation the day before or even right up to 15 minutes before the scheduled chat time. Here's what the invitation looks like again:
I look forward to seeing you on the chat!!
We are now using a new program called, "Zoom.US," where we can not only chat, hearing each other, but it is also a video chat/webinar format. So we can see each other as well!!
As for the new program, you'll see a notice similar to this in the Level I Facebook page, about a day or two before the chat. Sometimes it will be posted on the day of the chat:
To join the meeting, it is pretty simple. Either click on the link or call.
It is very, very important to "mute" your screen, unless you are going to speak. There is a microphone button for that. Or mute your phone (if you are only calling).
I absolutely love this new program because we get to see each other:)
I look forward to seeing you on the webinars!
