Do I need any special software to take the online courses?

You do not need any special software normally. Most of the articles or course material are simple web pages (html). Some are MP3 audios, Flash videos, YouTube videos, PDFs, and a very few use PowerPoint. These files may require extra software. All courses are clearly marked on the course pages as to what format the course materials are offered. Also see this page for courses listed by the format of course materials.

NOTE on YouTube videos: there is a known issue playing YouTube videos using IE11 browser. They recommend switching to ther latest version of any of the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or Edge (see this Google/YouTube forum post).
