In order to give as many children as possible an opportunity to learn from our award-winning instructors for free, we are using Zoom's largest webinar plan. With up to 50,000 students attending each class, interactions will be limited. Of those 50,000, only 350 children will be able to participate as panelists and engage in the full classroom experience.
The panelist access is given to those who are enrolled in Term 1 classes. We can accommodate the first 350 students who will log in using their unique link.
NOTE: Panelist slots are on first-come-first-serve basis. Therefore, once the slots are full for the class you are attending, your access will be a webinar attendee.
During the free week, we will be using Zoom's largest capacity for meetings, allowing us to include up to 50,000 participants.

Because these are FREE classes, we want to include as many children as possible, so we are using Zoom webinars. In Zoom webinars, we can only admit 350 panelists, whose videos can be seen by the class. The rest of the group (up to 50,000 children) will attend without seeing their own videos. The panelists are the first 350 students who are enrolled in our Term 1 classes.
Yes! We will post the replays a few hours after finishing the live classes. You can find them here. You can also find them on our Facebook page as we will host a live feed for our community there.
The replay videos will be available as long as the page is available.
To join the class, just register at arree.com/free. As soon as you register, you will receive an email confirmation with the zoom link. If you didn't receive a link after that time, you can check your Junk/Spam folder or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide you with the Zoom link.
You can consider the following to troubleshoot this issue:
1. Your internet connection may be at fault. Please try resetting your connection and then logging back in to the session.
2. You may need to close apps that you are not currently using to allow more bandwidth for the video call.
3. Make sure your Zoom app is up to date, especially if you're connecting from a mobile device or tablet.
4. Try connecting to the class on a different device.
5. If you have tried all of these steps and are still having issues, please reach out to Zoom support as this is a Zoom app issue. Here is a link to their FAQ's: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206175806
NOTE: If you are having troubles with Zoom, please remember we will also be live streaming on Facebook and Youtube, so you can join our group there.
