Frequently Asked Questions
1. How will I access my course?
We are using Google Classroom for class discussions, announcements, worksheets etc. It is important you join the Google Classroom as links to the live classes will also be shared on there. Once you have registered for a course, you will be sent a code to join the Google Classroom via e-mail.
We are using Zoom as our live stream application of the classes. It enables teachers to share their screen to display presentations and books, whilst also annotating on them live. You will be required to download the app or use the desktop version in order to part-take in the classes. Closer to the starting time of the course you will be sent a link via e-mail as well as Google Classroom to join the Zoom Meeting/live stream.
2. I am trying to register, but it says sold out.
Due to popular demand of these classes, the classes are filled very quickly. However, we have allowed interested students to join a waiting list, so that once we are able to accommodate a second class for the subject we will get back in touch with you.
3. What is the duration of the course?
The objective of these courses are to facilitate an opportunity to seek ‘ilm whilst in this state of isolation. We do not have a fixed duration for the courses and they vary from one subject to another. Please only commit to the course if you are able to attend at these times for the coming couple of months.
4. What if I cannot attend live?
We are not offering recordings for the classes, therefore it is imperative you attend every session live.
5. What is the course time in my country?
Course date and time have been stated on the poster with their timezone. Please use an online time converter to find the time in your country.
6. My Google Classroom code isn’t working, what shall I do?
Try the code again ensuring there are no spaces before and after the code. If need be, type the code in as opposed to copying and pasting it.
7. Can family members join in?
Sure. Family members can join in with you and follow the lesson. However, if it is a sisters only class, please ensure no male members are around.
