» Initial Software Setup

Note that Outreach Lesson Online Tuition will only work on computer running Windows XP or later OS. Currently there is no support for Apple iMac or Linux based computers. To begin, use a browser to go to http://www.orlesson.org and then log in to your account using the supplied userid and password. If this is the first time you are using your computer to access the Outreach Lesson site, you will need to install the RLS client on the computer. You will need to install it once for every computer that you use to access the Outreach Lesson site.

To install the RLS client, click on the download link at the login screen. You will be brought to the Software Download screen. The system will automatically detect the OS running on your computer and present you with the correct RLS to download and install. Click on the link. You will be prompted to Run or Save the downloaded application. Click on Run. The application will be downloaded and then run. Please follow the instruction on the screen.

At the end of the installation, the application will be run. A menu will appear on the screen informing you that the application is trying to access your internet connection. Please click on Allow Access or Unblock, depending on the question on the screen. Note that if you click No or Block, then the RLS application will not be able to receive the lesson from the Outreach Lesson server and your system will not work.

Once this is done, you will find a blue RLS icon on the task bar (next to the clock on the bottom right corner) of your computer. Each time your computer boots up, RLS will be automatically loaded just like Yahoo Messenger, or MSN.

You are now ready to access all lesson the Outreach Lesson server as well as attend live tuition classes.
