FOR ONLINE CLASS:
-- To take part, you need a laptop or desktop computer with (at least) 2G of memory and a 1Ghz processor (any computer bought in the last five years should be fine).
-- For bandwidth, you must have at least 0.5 Mbits/second upstream and 1 Mbits/second downstream. To check bandwidth use, https://speedtest.net/.
-- For browsers, we recommend Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox or Microsoft Edge.
-- For audio, we strongly recommend using a headset. A headset will ensure that others can hear your voice clearly and you don’t cause echo or background noise for others. You do not need to buy an expensive one -- any basic headset with a built-in microphone will work. You can get one at Fred Meyer’s electronics department. A laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone will be sufficient as well if you’re in a quiet area.
