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.
GCU LIVE 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.
GCU LIVE Lesson Requirements:
To take part in GCU LIVE Lessons, your classroom or learners must have internet access and the Zoom software downloaded on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. This can be done by visiting the Zoom Download Center in a web browser and downloading ‘Zoom Client for Meetings.’ 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. A high-volume speaker is also highly recommended to allow all participants to hear the lesson. The use of a webcam or a device with a camera is preferred, but not required. Access to a microphone or a device with a microphone is vital for selective lessons that require a more interactive experience.
In late 2020, GCU LIVE Lessons will begin supporting Google, GoToMeeting and Microsoft Teams video conferencing. Selections will be made available in our reservation tool as new conference options roll out.
