Software needed for each student PC:
This is an interactive seminar that does not require computers. The room should be configured to support pencil and paper exercises in groups of 3-4 participants.
For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor's screen simultaneously with working on their own.
