You can attend “live and online” classes and workshops remotely from the comfort of your home. We utilize the Microsoft Teams platform for our distance learning classes which you can attend using your computer, tablet, smartphone or traditional phone.
How Does It Work?
Braille Institute will provide you with an online link or phone number that will be used to connect to your specific class or workshop. Each session is live so you have the ability to speak with the instructor and other participants.
If you need assistance or training with using Microsoft Teams, you can view helpful videos on our website at brailleinstitute.org/remote-services or call the center at 951-787-8800 to schedule 1-1 help from a technology specialist. All services are free of charge.
Braille Institute Classes
Classes are held over multiple weeks during the semester period and attended weekly. Classes are for individuals who are presently students of Braille Institute. In order to become a student, you must provide a current Braille Institute doctor referral form and be on-boarded by an Intake Specialist, Student Advisor, or Blind & Low Vision Social Worker. Classes are offered by each of the seven Braille Institute centers with some classes being held in-person at the center and others held remotely which are attended by phone, computer or smartphone. To register for classes please contact the Registrar of the host center.
