SOFTWARE NEEDED FOR EACH PC:

Note: If you do not have classroom computers available with this spec, we can recommend a rental laptop vendor whose machines meet these specifications.
For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
