    Summer School Google Meet Times and Code

    Summer School Google Meets Sign-Up

    -Sign-up for a time for a Google Meet (code: summerstepan) or phone call.  It's especially important that I connect with all of you the first week so we can work out issues and hit the ground running.

    Google Meet Code: summerstepan

    Availability: 8-10am and 12-2:30pm or by request

    Weekly all-class Google Meet: 8-9am every Tuesday of summer school - this will be live streamed on Google Meet so I will record myself going over the information you need to know about Apex and course curriculum, but you will not be able to ask questions via the conference.  You will be able to ask questions via email though.  So send me questions before Tuesday so I can answer them in the live stream.  The Google Meet will be recorded so you don't have to watch it live unless you want to and you can access the recorded video here.
