How WebYeshiva.org Works
To join WebYeshiva.org, all you need is a computer with a broadband internet connection, and speakers or headphones. (A microphone and a web camera are optional, although recommended, so that you can be seen and heard by the teacher and other class participants).
From the comfort of your own home or office, you can log into a virtual classroom where you both can see and hear the teacher and the other students in your class. In this way, you are able to participate in an interactive session where you can ask questions, and engage in your learning.
