For hardware, we recommend a dual-core CPU with at least 2G of memory. We recommend any operating system capable of running the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox 5.x and later. For browser, we recommend running either Mozilla Firefox 5.x and later or Chrome. Why? Both browsers provide excellent support for web real-time communications (WebRTC). Safari 5.x and later, Internet Explorer 10.x and later, and Microsoft Edge will work as well, but Chrome and Mozilla Firefox 5.x and later will deliver better audio in lower bandwidth conditions.
The Center for Business Acceleration will strive to deliver its courselets and curriculums in accordance with the descriptions provided on the CBA website at the time of enrollment. However, in some situations it might be beneficial or necessary for the CBA to implement changes to courselets or curriculums. The changes will not be very substantial so as to have impact on students who have already started their courselet or curriculum. In some circumstances where it is necessary for the CBA to implement such changes after enrollment due to developments in the relevant subject, advances in teaching or evaluation practice, or requirements of accreditation processes, students will be notified of the changes made to courselets or curriculum immediately.
