Hear What Past HGS @Home Attendees Have to Say

"All of the instructors are knowledgeable and well prepared. It is great that you are able to ask your specific questions and get answers." - Testimonial from Maureen Curry, who has attended 10+ HGS @Home courses "I've really enjoyed the Rutgers HGS@Home series. It was a real gift to hear from the experts whose articles I've read in newspapers and magazines." - Testimonial from Sandra Johnson, who has attended 7 HGS @Home courses

Accessing Our Online Workshops (It's Easier Than You Think!)

Once you've registered for a course, you will receive a link via email 24 hours before the start of the course. Simply click that link and follow the prompts to allow Webex or Zoom on your computer, tablet, or iPhone. No microphones or webcams are necessary. If you do not have a microphone on your computer, you will have the option to dial in using a regular telephone to hear the course audio while viewing the course visuals on your device.

New to online learning? No problem! We will be sending out a document with helpful how-to tips for using Webex or Zoom to all registrants the day before the course. Plus, you can join the class 15 minutes early to get comfortable with the platform and see how you can utilize the chat feature to ask questions throughout the course.
