Frequently Asked Questions - Interactive Programs

What equipment do I need?

All you need is an internet connection! Schools can connect through Zoom Conferencing in an internet browser, ideally it is best for you to do so using a conference enabled smart board or laptop however there are a lot of different ways to make your setup work so please contact us if you are unsure. 

If you require technical assistance with your video conferencing facilities, contact your schools’ tech support or alternatively contact our Creative Learning team at creativelearning@sydneyoperahouse.com or 02 9250 7770.

How do I book?

Click on the link for your preferred session time. If it is the first time you have used DART Connections you will be required to set up a username and password. 

Please note that DART connections is the booking platform for all of our sessions and you will need to book here even if you are not a NSW or DET school.

Once your booking has been confirmed, our team will be in touch with relevant dial in details and to address any technical questions you may have.

How can I arrange a test call prior to the session?

Contact our Creative Learning team on 02 9250 7770 or creativelearning@sydneyoperahouse.com to arrange a test call.

Is Zoom secure? 

Sydney Opera House uses Zoom to deliver its Digital Creative Learning and Creative Leadership in Learning programs. The NSW Department of Education has approved the use of Zoom for all year levels. 

Sydney Opera House maintains an enterprise licence for Zoom and secures its Zoom sessions by using passwords. Zoom protects participants’ privacy by letting them blur out everything in the camera’s field of view, except themselves. Sydney Opera House does not record these sessions through Zoom’s built-in recording feature or through other means except with participants’ consent.

To interact with Sydney Opera House using Zoom you need to either know the password for that specific session, or have the meeting link with the embedded password.

How can I prepare my class for their session?

To ensure your students get the most out of the experience, a Teachers’ Resource Pack is available for this program (see the top of the page). We recommend using these resources in advance of your digital excursion.

How many students can I have participate in the one group?

As the program is interactive, we recommend a maximum of 30 students in one classroom for the session.

How many connections does my booking entitle me to?

Each booking entitles you to one connection (meaning that all students will be joining the call from the one space). If you would like to book for multiple classrooms to attend at one time you will just need to make an additional booking and correctly record the number of students in each group.

What if I need to change or cancel my booking?

If you are unable to proceed with your booked session, please email us at creativelearning@sydneyoperahouse.com at least two days prior and we will do our best to accommodate you. Bookers who fail to attend on their booked sessions without providing notice may be barred from further bookings.
