If your computer does not have a current Flash player you can click here to download a free copy.


Many courses have audio content. If you are in a shared working space or somewhere where audio might disturb others, a set of headphones will be required. Otherwise you may be able to use the internal speakers on your pc or for a better experience connect to a set of external speakers.
