2. Clicking on View Lesson will take you to the Classroom welcome screen (see below). If this is your first time using the Classroom (or if you’re using the Classroom on a new computer), your browser will prompt you to allow italki.com to access your camera and microphone.
Again, this is to provide italki.com platform permission to access your camera and microphone to enter the italki Classroom. Your lesson content is private. italki does not have access to your video or audio content and we do not record video or audio of any part of a lesson in the italki Classroom.

START YOUR LESSON!
1. When you enter the italki Classroom, you will see a countdown timer until the lesson begins. The lesson will automatically start at the scheduled time. When the lesson time starts you and your student will be in the classroom.
2. If you experience connection problems on italki Classroom, you have access to your student’s details (and they to yours) from the ‘Connection problems?’ link.
3. After your italki Classroom is complete, go ahead and confirm by selecting EVERYTHING WAS OK or I HAD PROBLEMS
SCREEN SHARING FUNCTION
Screen Sharing is a function that currently only works for Google Chrome Browsers.
To turn on Screen Sharing, click on the Screen Share button on the italki Classroom Toolbar at the bottom of the page.
