In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will be using the chess.com platform to pre record lessons. This will be done using the screen share feature on zoom. Learners are not required to use chess.com as they can use a physical chess board or any chess app that their parental guardian feels is appropriate in order to follow along with the lesson. Chess.com or chesskid.com are recommended however. Parental guardians can set up an account for their children if they would like. Both of these platforms are FREE!
