Hardware recommendations for online training

As a minimum, all you need is:

  • A computer (Windows or Mac) that is connected to the Internet and capable of running the software on which you’re being trained.
  • A mouse. (If you’re using a laptop, we advise against using its mousepad for your training.)
  • A webcam.

For the best experience, we recommend two screens – one to participate in the training, and the other to run the software you’re being trained on, carry out exercises, etc.

Hardware for live online training - two screens

If you’re not able to connect two screens to the same computer, a fallback option is to use two separate devices. If you use two separate devices, the device you use to participate in the training can be a Windows computer, Mac, iPad, Android tablet or smartphone. Be aware, however, that tablets and smartphones don’t offer an optimum format for training delivery.

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 on.
