Joining Our Online Classroom

Participating in our 10-week online course is easy: our classes take place via an online classroom that lets you see and hear and ask questions in real time.

The School of Practical Philosophy offers its introductory course, Philosophy Works, via Zoom‘s interactive-learning format. This live, video classroom allows the entire group to be heard and seen via a video conference. The introductory series of 10 sessions is presented in classes lasting one-hour-and-thirty-minutes each week.

For video, you will need to have a computer with a webcam, or a mobile device (phone or tablet) with a front-facing camera. For audio, built-in or external microphone are needed, and a decent quality headset or headphones are preferred.

Additional technical requirements for installing and running Zoom can be found here. We are, of course, happy to help you log in to our classrooms. Should you have any questions or concerns, please email techsupport@philosophyworks.org.
