Operating System

NDG Online Labs require the use of a desktop operating system (Windows, Mac, or Linux). Smartphones and tablet devices are not supported.

Hardware

You must use a device with with a physical keyboard and pointing device (laptop or desktop). All labs and virtual machines are designed to be used and assume the use of a en-US QWERTY keyboard layout. Other keyboard layouts may work, but are unsupported. If encountering difficulty with a non-English keyboard, you may need to switch keyboard layouts or use a virtual keyboard set to en-US.

Note that the Caps Lock function of keyboards are part of the host operating system, and does not normally transfer to virtual machines or remote desktops. Using the Shift key for capital letters as you would normally type will work as normal.
