LAAPA Virtual Classroom – Technical Troubleshooting Guide

Thanks for joining us for our online classes.  While we are unable to troubleshoot student computer issues, here is a general guideline for ensuring proper video class communications:


Mobile Devices:

  1. From your iOS or Android device, install the Zoom video conferencing app from the app store
  2. Open your Internet browser such as Safari, Google Chrome, etc and navigate to class.laapa.com.  Click on one of the red “Launch Conference room” buttons to join the conference.
  3. Be sure to select "Open" when prompted to "Open this page in 'Zoom'".
  4. If the class has not yet started, you may be prompted to wait for the Host to arrive.
  5. Once the meeting starts, you may be prompted to confirm your name - the default is the name of your device. Change it if you wish. Once you confirm your name, it takes a few additional seconds to connect!
  6. Audio during the conference may be either Internet or Telelphone based. If you'd prefer to dial into the call with a phone, tap the More... button and disconnect the audio and then join again by selecting the "dial in" option.
  7. Once connected to the video conference, navigate back to class.laapa.com and launch the appropriate whiteboard. You will need to create an account the first time using the system and will need to verify it via social media or a valid email account.
  8. While on a mobile device and having the whiteboard as your active tab, your video will stop, however audio in both directions should be functional.
PC/MAC:
  1. Open your Internet browser such as Safari, Google Chrome, (Internet Explorer not recommended).  Navigate to http://class.laapa.com.  Click the red “Launch Studio Z; button to join the conference.  Proceed with downloading any required applications associated with Zoom. If nothing loads (see the instructions on the Zoom website).  Once everything is installed, click “Open in Zoom Meetings" or follow the additional prompts to setup your camera and audio. You may setup your audio either over your computer or by dialing in via your telephone.
  2. If you are having trouble hearing others OR they are having trouble hearing you. Check the bottom left corner of your screen and ensure that mute is not enabled. You may also need to "join audio" and choose either computer or dial in audio options.
  3. If you are still having issues, try using the Zoom app instead on a mobile device. If this corrects the issue, then you need to further debug your PC/MAC.
  4. Once connected to the video conference, navigate back to class.laapa.com and launch the appropriate whiteboard. You will need to create an account the first time using the system and will need to verify it via social media or a valid email account.
