Lab Equipment and Devices
The sessions are conducted in a computer lab and you will have a lab computer for you to use.
You are welcome to bring your own computer to the lab sessions if you prefer to use that. Wireless access is available in the lab.
At times you will be doing a fair bit of typing and you will want to have a large enough screen and separate physical keyboard so that you can view content and type at the same time.
Lab exercises are based on using the lab computers.
If it appears that you are having challenges with your own device, we will ask you to use the lab computer.
