• Do not give out any personal information online, such as your full name, phone number, home or email address.
• Please be aware of your surroundings, particularly if your online activity enables you to share your video or microphone. Ensure that your back-drop is appropriate for a classroom setting, and if there are any unexpected noises etc. (including noisy family members!) please mute your microphone or stop the video as needed, until you are safely able to re-activate.
• Please do not take photographs of your screens or share any images of the online session, this is for your safety as well as the safety of other participants and staff.
