❖ Computer with Windows 7 or newer, or Mac OS X 10.7 or later
❖ If using tablet or iPad: Surface PRO 2 or newer, IOS & Android devices
❖ Web Camera (built in or USB)
❖ Microphone (built in, USB, microphone on earbuds, etc.)
❖ Earbuds or headphones
❖ Mouse, if using a computer. May need a stylus pen if using a tablet/ipad.
❖ Updated Chrome browser (specialized multisensory platform built for use with Chrome)
❖ ZOOM Video Conferencing downloaded ( www.zoom.us ). If using a tablet/ipad, download the Zoom app. When it’s time for a session, I’ll email the ZOOM room number, you’ll double click on the link in the email, and we’ll both connect.
❖ Run a speed test at www.speedtest.net:
➢ Download/upload speed of at least 1.2 Mbps (2 – 2.6 Mbps is ideal)
➢ Minimum download/upload speed is 600kbps, but will be slower
❖ Limit use of the network by other devices during the online instruction session as much as possible ( other devices streaming content such as Netflix, Pandora, etc., will drastically reduce bandwidth required for online instruction ).
