Software needed for each student PC:
Class files and instructions for setting them up on your BusinessObjects server are provided. All attendees and the instructor will need access to the server during the training.
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.
