All users must listen to class sessions using headphones, not computer speakers, to avoid feedback when their microphones are enabled. If you have a built-in microphone that you prefer to use (such as those on many newer Macs), you must use basic headphones or earbuds in conjunction with the built-in microphone, or else there will be feedback problems with the audio. Please make sure that you have your headset in time for the first class session.
Test Your Headset: You should test your headset in advance of your first class. Your instructor will give you a link to an Adobe Connect room for testing, which has instructions on how to run the Audio Setup Wizard and how to check your webcam if your class will be using it.
PC: A USB-based microphone and headset seem to work best. If your computer has a built-in microphone that you wish to use, then you only need standard headphones or earbuds.
Mac: If your Mac has a built-in microphone that you wish to use, then you only need standard headphones or earbuds. Standard microphone/headset/earbud arrangements are supported.
