Computer needs

120We have been very careful to avoid requiring a special sort of computer or requiring you to install special software for our programmes. In fact, our learning materials can be used on a computer that costs under $100 new, and on many very inexpensive used computers. Linux, Windows and Mac should all be fine. You will need a good, modern Internet Browser. Firefox or Chrome would be excellent choices (and cost nothing to download). The browser will need to support HTML5, accept cookies, and have JavaScript enabled. Don't worry if you do not know what the previous sentence meant; the easiest thing is to give it a try.  If you are having difficulty, please let us know and we will give you some guidance.

You will also need an Internet connection. We have been very careful to keep the bandwidth needs modest. However, if you have a very slow Internet connection, there will be some inconvenience. Again, feel free to contact us for help.

You will also need basic computer skills. However, if you are able to navigate this website, you should be fine.
