What kind of equipment or software do I need for successful participation in a course?

Authors list

To participate in an online course, you need nothing more than a stable Internet connection and the latest version of one of the main Internet browsers.

The Teacher Academy’s online courses are best viewed using the Chrome or Firefox browsers, but they are also certified for Internet Explorer, Windows Edge and Safari. Unfortunately, the Opera browser is not currently supported, so you might experience some minor difficulties if you are using this browser.

In some courses we will offer webinars, which are 1-hour live online seminars, using a tool called Webex or Adobe Connect. On some systems you might be asked to download a small piece of software for this tool to work. You do not need a webcam or microphone for these webinars.
