Ideally you will need a device (computer, tablet or smartphone) and some way of connecting to the internet, mobile data can be expensive and video conferencing uses a lot of data. If you have landline broadband, the connection speed needs to be fast enough to cope with video streaming.
To participate full with the online sessions you will need a microphone, web camera, speakers or headphones, and a display screen so you can see and hear the class as well as be seen and heard yourself.
Finally you will need to be in quiet environment, if there is a lot of background noise it will affect everyone’s ability to hear people speaking, If this is not possible you will be able to mute your device so you can just listen.
If you’re unsure please give us a call and we’ll be happy to advise.
