Participating in Activities

There are three ways to join FLUX activities:

  1. From a URL (e.g. flux.qa/ABC123)
  2. From within FLUX
  3. From your LMS

Joining a FLUX session from a URL

If your instructor has provided you with a URL that looks something like flux.qa/ABC123, you can get started by simply opening your browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari or Firefox) and navigating to the URL.

If your instructor has made this session private, you may be asked to sign in before you can participate. If so, you can click the “sign in” button and sign into FLUX using your university email address. Note that, as a student, you don’t need to sign up for a FLUX account.

Note that you may not see the session card (see example below) when you first open FLUX. The card for your session will only be visible once your instructor has started the session. If you can’t see the session card and believe it should be available, you may need to ask your instructor to check that it has been started.
