For live virtual collaboration on desktop/laptop/tablet: Windows 10, macOS 10.11 and above, Linux, ChromeOS
- Chrome (version 65 and above) - for Windows PC/laptop, Chromebook, Android mobile devices, iMAC and MacBook (Chrome for macOS)
- Mac Safari (version 12 and above) - for iMAC and MacBook
If you do not have Chrome, download Chrome for free.
Please DO NOT use Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Explorer.
We also highly recommend that you set your browser on automatic update so that it will automatically be updated when a new version is available.
Read how you can update Chrome. To keep Safari up to date, update MacOS on your Mac.
Note: If you are trying to access ClassDo on Google Chrome from China, you may need to install VPN first on your device in order to be able to access Chrome.
You will need a strong and stable internet connection to support high-quality video and audio.
We strongly recommend that you run a speed test on your device's web browser before each online collaboration, especially if you are in a new environment or if you are connecting to public WIFI. Minimum speeds for a smooth virtual collaboration experience are:
- Ping: <15 ms. The smaller the number, the better.
- Upload speed: >30 mbps. The bigger the number, the better.
- Download speed: >30 mbps. The bigger the number, the better.
If your internet speed is often slower than the recommended above, you should move closer to your router or look into enhancing the coverage of your router.
Both built-in or external web cameras are supported.
Ensure that you have allowed access to the camera on your device. Also, make sure that you have given permission for ClassDo to access your camera on Chrome and, if you have more than one web camera, that the correct camera is selected on Chrome Settings.
Headset with microphone (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
It is best to use a headset with microphone for the best audio quality and to avoid background noise and acoustic feedback. If you use your device's built-in microphone, it will pick up all background noise when you are in a noisy environment, as well as cause the voices of your room members to echo if you turn the speaker volume too loud.
Also, ensure that you have given permission for ClassDo to access your microphone on Chrome (chrome://settings/content/microphone), and the correct sound input device is selected on Chrome Settings.
Users who do not have touchscreen computers or touchscreen tablets, or who need to do detailed or fine writing/drawing in their collaboration work, may wish to purchase an option stylus pen for writing and drawing, such as WACOM stylus or Apple Pencil.
