Adobe Flash Pro CS5 Windows or Adobe Flash Pro Mac or Adobe Flash Pro CS5 Windows Upgrade or Adobe Flash Pro Mac Upgrade or any Adobe Creative Suite bundle containing Adobe Flash CS5 are all acceptable (Software must be installed and fully operational before the course begins.)
You will need Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7 (the upgrade version will run on Windows XP) or Mac OS 10.x. You will also need Internet access, email, and the Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, or Mozilla Firefox Web browser. In addition, you will need the Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins (two free and simple downloads you obtain at http://www.adobe.com/downloads by clicking Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader). Artistic ability is not required—just a desire to be creative.
