Technical requirements

All students have full access to our online learning environment. 

All you need to access our online learning environment is a PC, laptop or tablet with a good internet connection. It also works with most smartphones. No extra software is needed to watch the recorded tutorials, making it easy to catch up if you miss a class.

If you’d like to take an online course, you’ll need the following in order to participate in our live online tutorials:

  • PC, laptop or tablet with Flash installed (preferably running Windows, but it also works with Macs)
  • USB headset with microphone – this needs to be a proper computer headset, i.e. one that has a microphone and speakers. The headset needs to connect to your computer via a USB port
  • Internet connection speed of at least 512 kbps (upload)
  • WizIQ desktop app (free of charge and downloadable from us)

Written coursework needs to be submitted in MS Word 2007 or later. If you’re a Mac user, you’ll need to save your file in a format that is compatible with Office 2010.
