On Windows or a Mac, go to https://view.madisoncity.k12.al.us and choose "Install VMware Horizon Client". Then download and install the correct client.

When prompted for the "Connection Server" or "Server Host", enter "view.madisoncity.k12.al.us" without the quotes.

Login with your network credentials.

From a web browser that supports HTML5 (most modern web browsers), navigate to https://view.madisoncity.k12.al.us and choose "VMware Horizon HTML Access".
