You use an IRC client already
Use your IRC client (such as xchat, irssi or mIRC) to connect to the Freenode IRC network at irc.freenode.net. You can do this manually by typing:
Then join #ubuntu-classroom for the time and date of the session you want to attend. You can manually join the channel by typing:
You should also join #ubuntu-classroom-chat which is the general discussion channel for the session. Questions should be posted there. You should prefix your questions with QUESTION: to make them easier to spot.
Most sessions last for around an hour. Contact dholbach on IRC if you have any problems.
For instructions on how to use the various IRC clients, see XChatHowto, GaimHowto, and Irssi, respectively. General information about IRC is located at InternetRelayChat. For Windows users just getting started finding out about Ubuntu, you can use XChat for Windows from http://silverex.info/download/ or Gaim/Pidgin from http://gaim.sourceforge.net/ (both free). For Ubuntu users of course these come from the repositories.
