WHAT DO I NEED?
In order to follow and participate in the Diploma in Italian Online you will need:
1) PC/Mac/laptop with functional operating system (not a demo version) and sound card. Tablets do not have the same functionalities as a Pc/Mac/laptop. Whilst some activities can still be carried out, we do not recommend that you rely solely on a tablet.
2) Headphones and microphone. In-built speakers and microphones are fine but for online sessions and for recording we recommend using a separate headset. It doesn’t need to be expensive.
1) Microsoft Office. A demo version will not suffice. If you don’t have Microsoft Office, once you enrol in the Diploma (or if you already are a student) you can avail of discounts on www.campus.ie.
2) Up-to-date Java software. This is probably already installed on your PC/Mac/Laptop. If not, you can dowload it here for free.
You will also need to have access to a reliable internet connection.
