Hardware recommendations for online training
As a minimum, you’ll need an Internet-connected computer with:
- Audio capability: a headset, or microphone and speakers, so you can hear and be heard.
- A webcam.
- The software on which you’re being trained installed.
For further details about computer setup, and to read our Ts&Cs relating to online training, see www.armada.co.uk/onlinets&cs.
For the best experience, we recommend:
- You use a real mouse. If you’re using a laptop or MacBook, we advise against using its trackpad. For CAD and related courses, your mouse should have a scroll wheel.
- Two screens – one to follow the training, and the other to practice using the software you’re learning, carry out exercises, etc.
If you’re not able to use two screens with the same computer, a fallback option is to use two separate devices. The device you use to follow the training can be a Windows computer, Mac, iPad or Android tablet.
If you don’t have two screens or two separate devices, you can do everything on a single screen. It will mean, though, you having to switch between the training session and the software you’re being trained in.
