An Internet connection capable of supporting a decent video call (without lagging).  It is also recommended that you use headphones, ear buds, or keep your speaker volumes at a lower moderate volume level else feed back might occur.

*Note: Our courses utilizes ZOOM a very diverse and friendly video conferencing client software program (Free). We recommend using Desktop or Laptop setups and not on smaller screened Smart Phone or Tablet devices as viewing and participation may be impeded. It is also recommended that you use headphones, ear buds, or keep your speaker volumes at a lower moderate volume level else feed back might occur. Elevated volumes from speakers have been found to cause feed backs especially when within close proximity of your microphone/webcam, or a number of people are attending a zoom session (same same scenario as with television, or radio broadcasts) which is why a radio DJ or television interviewer will ask you to turn your tv or radio volume down if you are on a phone with them. To prevent this use headphones or ear buds.
