IT’S GREAT TO HAVE YOUR CHILD JOINING KiddiCode CLUB!

To start coding you will need the following;

Joining our coding club is super easy. You do not need to install any software to join. The class is run via our website, on our integrated learning environment called OLIO. (OLIO comes from a coding term “Object Orientated Programming” equivalent in Finnish, and also means a “creature” in Finnish.) 

We strongly recommend you test logging in well in advance before start of the club, so we have time to help you if needed.

We use integrated Zoom for the video connection. Zoom does not work with very old operating systems or web browsers. 

OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 7 or MacOS 10.9 or newer.

WEB BROWSER: Please use Chrome browser only for the classes (versions 30+)

You can find full compatibility details on Zoom website.

ATTENTION! MAC USERS;

Use Chrome browser to join the class as some Zoom functions are not available for users in Safari browser. If you don’t have Chrome on you Mac, you can easily download it here >> DOWNLOAD CHROME FOR MAC

HOW TO JOIN THE CLASS;

INSTRUCTIONS STEP BY STEP

# 1

Login with the link and password we sent you.

If you are having trouble logging in, you can find help here >>

# 2

You can see the code editor and Zoom underneath each other on the screen. If you cannot see the Trinket code editor at the bottom, zoom out to approximately 80% on your browser setting. You do not have to see the Trinket fully.

# 3

Type your child’s first name on the Zoom screen name field and click “JOIN EVENT VIA BROWSER”.

# 4

Click “JOIN” button on the next screen to join the class (you might have to scroll down to see the button).

# 5

Zoom will ask if you allow it to use your audio and video. Allow both. 

You can turn the microphone and camera on on two different locations on the browser. 

1. Click the image of a padlock on right hand side of the browser search bar (image 1.) and choose “Allow”, or

2. Click the image of a camera on the left hand side of the browser search bar (image 2.) and choose “Continue allowing…”.

Wait until your teacher arrives.

# 6

Zoom controls;

Turn the microphone and camera on on the left hand bottom corner, unless they are already on. Choose “Same as system” under the arrow if they don’t seem to be working. 

In the middle of the screen you can see a green “Share Screen” button, which we willbe using during the class.

# HELP WITH LOGIN

Make sure you type in your password correctly. If you are still having trouble logging in, the likely culprit is browser cache. 

Go to your web browser setting and clear the cache. In Chrome you can find this on the top right hand corner as shown in the image. 

DO THE FOLLOWING:

Settings >> Privacy and security >> Clear browsing data >> Cached images and files >> Clear.

 

BEFORE THE CLASS-

!!! Log in 5min before start of the club.

!!! Also test your microphone and camera so that your KiddiCoder is able to communicate with us. 

Contact me immediately if you face any problems with logging in.

You are now ready to start coding. Well done!!
