In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are temporarily holding practices online. As teaching online is new to us, we will be constantly evaluating our system for practice and making changes as needed. Please be patient as we figure out what will work best for the team.
Do the normal participation policies apply to ARML online?
Yes (see above).
Do I need to separately register for ARML online?
No. All you need to do is sign up for the mailing list so that you can get links to join meetings.
Do I need to fill out a release form to participate in ARML online?
That's a good question. We don't yet know the answer and we're looking into it.
Accessing Online Practices
How will online practices be conducted?
We will set up meetings using Zoom.
How do I get into the Zoom meeting?
A link to register will be sent via the mailing list. Register using that link, then you will get a confirmation email with a link to the meeting.
Do I need to download the Zoom application onto my (laptop/phone/tablet)?
You can, and it might be easier, but you don't need to. When you click the link to the meeting, there's an option to open the meeting in your browser. If you do want to download Zoom, please do so in advance of the meeting.
Why does Zoom kick me out of the meeting after 40 minutes?
Unlimited meeting time is a feature reserved for paid subscribers.
Do I need to buy a Zoom subscription so that I can stay in the meeting for longer than 40 minutes?
No. We will plan practices and meetings in 40 minute chunks so that you don't need to buy a plan.
Will practices be recorded and posted online?
For the time being, no. We are looking into legal issues (e.g. whether the release form allows this). If this changes, we will announce the change clearly and repeatedly.
