PC, Netbook, or Windows Laptop: TakeLessons Classroom System Requirements

As long as your PC, netbook, or Chromebook is less than 4 years old, you should be able to join an online group class or private lesson on TakeLessons Classroom.  

Make sure you have:

  • Internet: Download speed of at least 3.5 Mbps, upload speed of at least 0.5 Mbps. (Learn more)
  • Operating System: Windows 7 or newer with the latest updates installed
  • Processor: Dual-core 2.4GHz or faster (2GB of RAM recommended)
  • Video Card: at least 64MB of video memory
  • Sound Card: at least 16-bit
  • Microphone: working onboard mic, or USB-connected mic
  • Speakers: working onboard speakers, or USB-connected speakers
  • Webcam: working onboard webcam, or USB-connected webcam

 For the best learning experience, we recommend:

  • A headset with microphone makes it easier for your teacher and classmates to hear you.  You’ll also hear them better!
  • A quiet environment with no distractions.  If your TV is blaring in the background, you might even make it hard for other classmates to learn!
