Our online classes use modern audio and video technology. Ensure you have an up-to-date browser to benefit from them. We currently support the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge. Other browsers may work, but are not supported.

While the website can be accessed by mobile devices, we recommend that you use a larger screen. A desktop or laptop, if you have the option, will provide a more beneficial learning experience.
