MESSAGE FROM TIM CHANTER

 

Hi all,

It was a pleasure to see so many of you online today.

As I mentioned I will be offering some technical training in small groups on using Zoom and BBO together to enable online lessons.

Following that I will recommence lessons on Monday afternoons fortnightly at 2.30 starting in 2 weeks ie 27th April.  I don't think I can manage more than 16 people at once, but if there is greater demand I will rerun each session.  Below is the schedule and lesson topic and I will simply charge £15 per session.

In the first instance please let me now if you would like to be involved in the pre-training (no need if you feel confident to use BBO and Zoom together already; but even if you have used both I would suggest you join to check the best way to set up your devices - Nigel's suggestion of having one application on each of two devices is a good one).

Best wishes

Tim
