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:

/server irc.freenode.net

join #ubuntu-classroom for the time and date of the session you want to
attend. You can manually join the channel by typing:

/join #ubuntu-classroom

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.
