Using VTC tutorials outside LSE

Because VTC delivers training via the Web, it is accessible anytime and from anywhere. However, there are a number of issues you need to bear in mind when using VTC tutorials off campus:

  • Ensure you have an up-to-date version of the QuickTime Player or download the VTC  Media Player.
  • If you are accessing via a dial-up connection or in an area with poor internet bandwidth, ensure you select the Low Bandwidth option found in the Select Bandwidth area on the right side of the course page.
