Set up your Device

First, make sure you have a device that has the ability to send and receive video and sound. Second, make sure that device is able to connect to the internet.

If you are using a computer, most come with a built in webcam, microphone and speakers, but some computers do not. If that is the case, you will need to purchase a webcam, speakers, and/or microphone that is compatible with your device.

If you are using a smart phone or tablet, most come with a built in webcam, microphone and speakers.

Older devices may not be supported.

Check that you have Internet

After you’ve selected your device, please connect to the internet. Ensure you have a good connection to improve your video and sound quality. To connect to the internet, you can use one of the following:

  • A Direct Ethernet Connection
  • Wi-Fi Connection
  • Data/Hotspot

The quality of your connection will vary. Ethernet is most stable, and if you are using Wi-Fi move closer to your internet router to have the best connectivity.
