FOR ONLINE CLASS:
-- For browsers, we recommend Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox or Microsoft Edge. You can also use Safari on Mac OS X, but you will not be able to use the screen sharing feature .
-- 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.
