The VedaWeb classroom is intended to provide you with virtually the same experience as our students in the classroom.  This is NOT a distance learning program--this is live, in the classroom.  The teacher will be able to see you and you will be able to see the teacher. You'll also see all presentation materials and be able to ask questions just like any other student in the class.

What type of internet connection do I need?

You must have a broadband connection (DSL, cable or satellite).  Dial-up is just too slow.  Wireless can be used, but it may be unreliable.
