Please review the system requirements to ensure your device and Internet setup meet hardware, software, and bandwidth requirements in advance taking a course.
Enjoy ASHA Professional Development online courses from any device—all you need is an Internet connection! We recommend using a wired broadband connection—wireless, mobile, satellite, and dial-up connections are not always as fast or stable. On rare occasions, disruptions to your Internet connection can result in courses freezing or closing abruptly. If this occurs, simply log in again and rejoin.
A live Internet video feed that is clear and uninterrupted requires sufficient bandwidth. If you plan to take a course in an environment with limited Internet bandwidth, encourage your peers to minimize their streaming activities (e.g., Internet radio, YouTube, downloading large files). Wi-Fi is not recommended because signal strength can vary, causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.

Here are three key tips to avoid common online conference access issues:
For other technical issues during an online conference, submit a Help Desk request in the conference site.
Paid online conference registrants can log in beginning the first day of the conference. Go to My Account and enter your username and password. Under "ASHA Courses and Orders," select the name of the conference. Note: Online conferences work differently than webinars and other ASHA Professional Development courses. You do not access online conferences through the "Enrolled" tab in your ASHA Learning Center. Rather, online conferences appear in your ASHA Account under "ASHA Courses and Orders" beginning on the first day of the event.
