2) We also recommend the use of a headset. It is not required, but can be helpful depending on the environment in which you will be taking the class. The headset is intended for listening only; if you have one with a microphone, that is fine but you will not be using it.
3) You will need a web browser and the latest version of Flash which works with that web browser. While Internet Explorer is supported, we recommend using the Firefox browser for stability and security. Below is a grid of operating systems, browsers, Flash versions, and screen resolutions we recommend specifically for the online class experience.

For those downloading class files:
We will have a test file (video and audio of a sample class) for you on our orientation page of the class headquarters. The file will play in the browser, and there will be an option to download the file to your computer for offline viewing. You can use this to test the audio and video on your computer.
Once a file is downloaded onto your computer, the application to play that file will vary by user. Once the file is downloaded, we recommend viewing it with iTunes. If this is an issue for any users, we can refer you to other free applications to play back the class.
