To make the most of your learning experience, make sure you're:
- Using a decent laptop or PC with one of the following operating systems: Windows 7 (or above), Linux (Ubuntu 13.04 above) or Mac OS X (10.9 or above). We don't recommend learning on a tablet or smartphone!
- Have a built-in or external webcam
- Have decent headphones with microphone
- Have a wifi connection with a minimum speed of 1 Mbps.
You can download Skype and Zoom on your desktop. Zoom is integrated in our Learning Dashboard so simple click the link in your calendar to join your tutor. Make sure you open zoom app instead of the browser for a better learning experience.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money on equipment as your internal in-built microphone and webcam should be fine. We recommend finding a quiet place to learn with good lighting and access to power supply in case your battery runs low. Have your textbooks and folders on your desk and a drink to keep hydrated.
