GCU Live Lessons
GCU LIVE Lessons are an innovative opportunity for students and teachers to participate in a 45-minute interactive activity specific to an area of interest. Lessons can be hosted in a face-to-face classroom or, for select lessons, a virtual classroom setting. GCU LIVE Lessons feature GCU curriculum designed by the university’s college experts and faculty. Students will have the opportunity to develop hands-on skills or explore advanced concepts through the web-hosted presentation.
These lessons are intended for students at or above 11th grade in high school. Due to popularity of these lessons and individual needs of schools nationwide, teachers are kindly asked to keep their reservations to a reasonable number per semester.
Streaming is supported on Google Meets, Microsoft Teams and Zoom video conferencing.
Requirements: To take part in GCU LIVE Lessons, your classroom or learners must have internet access and one of GCU's supported streaming software options downloaded on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. You must also have a projector screen, smart board, TV or another form of a large screen to connect your device so that all participants can view the lesson.
It is highly recommended that you also have access to a high-volume speaker, a webcam and a microphone or a device with a microphone. These will all greatly add to your students' experience and the ease of communication with our presenter.
