  • High-speed internet connection and adaptive WiFi-this must include an appropriate bandwidth. 
  • You must be familiar with platforms, such as Zoom and Skype, and be able to video chat. 
  • Familiarity with instant chat also known as (IM) tools, such as Google HangoutsLiveChat, OlarkJivoChatSlack, and Microsoft Teams.
