Our aim at GTT during this difficult time is to help you become more confident with the use of smartphones, tablets, laptops and/or computers and to be able to access the necessary online resources available for you in the comfort and safety of your own home.
It’s FREE and SIMPLE to become a GTT student:
What will I need?
- To join any of our weekly sessions you will need a device such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop and/or a computer. A webcam or built-in camera on your laptop or computer is preferable if you want to interact fully with other students in the group.
- You must have some way of connecting to the Internet, mobile data can be expensive and video conferencing uses a lot of data. If you have landline broadband, the connection speed needs to be fast enough to cope with video streaming.
- Finally you will need to be in quiet environment, if there is a lot of background noise it will affect everyone’s ability to hear people speaking, If this is not possible you will be able to mute your device so you can just listen.
If you’re unsure please give us a call and we’ll be happy to advise.
