Connecting to the Virtual Classroom - Electa

We use Electa for our live online classroom. To access the classroom, you'll need to install a small plugin onto the computer or device you plan to use.  Just follow the instructions below.

Installing Electa

You need to have permission to install applications on the computers or devices you are planning to use. If you do not, please send a link to this article to your IT people who can.
You always need to go to the Member Center with your web browser (Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) to get into the correct classroom. The following is just for setting up your computer or device.
