What are the wiziq classroom requirements?

To use WiZiQ, users first need to have minimum PC requirements, which include a reasonably fast computer, a good Internet connection, and a headset for speaking and listening. A computer video camera is not necessary, but is desirable to make the learning experience more realistic.

• Operating System/Web Browsers/Accessories

• MAC OS X onwards

• Intel Pentium 4 or above and equivalent processor

• 2 GB RAM

• Internet Explorer 7 and above

• Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and above

• Latest Flash player (10.1) and Java Runtime Environment 1.6

• Headphones/External mic

• Web Camera (optional)

Minimum Bandwidth Requirement (Upload and download speed should be same or close)

Here are few tips to avoid echo and noise issues in your class:

• Select the appropriate audio device from the available device list

• Everyone with audio controls should use headsets as external speakers + microphone causes acoustic echo

• Avoid using the internal or web camera microphone

• Make sure you have selected “Adjust audio automatically” from “Audio Setting” in device settings

• The microphone should not be too close to mouth and you should speak across it rather than into it
