What we Recommend
Although modern tablets and smartphones will work very well, we strongly recommend a PC for a superior classroom experience. Your lessons should always be in a quiet, well-lit room where you will not be disturbed during the lesson. You will need both a video camera and microphone on your computer or mobile device for the online lesson.
You will need to have at least 4Mbps download speed. 8Mbps or more is recommended. Using a wired connection will add better results. We at AOLC cannot be held responsible for any issues affecting the Internet Connection at your end. Please contact your Internet Provider if you are having any problems.
