What equipment will I need
To access your courses you will need to have a computer with a broadband internet connection. It is possible to access many (but not all) course environments using a dial-up internet connection, but we highly recommend broadband. Similarly, it is possible to access a number of environments using a portable device such as a tablet or smartphone, but you will sometimes require a fully-featured laptop or desktop computer running a standard operating system (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux). Depending on the course options you take, you may also need to get hold of some specific pieces of software – these will generally be availably freely or at low cost, and full guidance will be given.
