- A Webcam (The Logitech c 910 is a great choice). Expect to spend at least $50 on a webcam.
- High Speed Internet. (Find out more about Skype internet speed requirements.)
- Headphones or Speakers to listen to the class. (Most laptops come with integrated speakers.)
- Microphone to answer (Most laptops come with integrated microphones.)
Hint: If you do not have a microphone, you could use the instant messaging box to respond until you get one.
