Software setup

You can either use your own computer or a school machine.

School machines have all of the software that you will need[1] to use.

The instructions below show how to install all of the required software onto your own computer.

Some software might be different to what is used in class. This is so that you have a free alternative to software used in class. Where possible the same software is used on school computers and on your own devices.
