Technical requirements
For virtual classrooms (VC), the EPO uses Cisco WebEx, so initially some WebEx software will be installed on your computer. If this is not allowed due to different settings, you can also run a temporary application. For more information please see the "VC guidelines for participants" under "Downloads". In order to make full use of the VC session, we recommend to use headsets.
