To study with us using NetMeeting, all you need is the following:

  • A PC, or a Mac running Virtual PC
  • A sound-card, and a headphone with an attached microphone (speakers & microphone aren't as good - a headset is much better!)
  • Minimum 90MHz processor
  • 16 megabytes (MB) of RAM for Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me; 24 megabytes (MB) of RAM for Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0.
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.01 or later

If you need to update your Internet Explorer, please click here to get it from the Microsoft site (for free).
