The steps to setup CWLearn/CWListen are:

1. You will need Internet access to GMU; if you donít have an Internet Service Provider, or connection to GMU is poor, we will provide you with information on how to dial into GMU directly.

2. Download CWLSetup.exe from: http://bacon.gmu.edu/nec-support/classwise/download.htm

3. Run CWLSetup and answer "yes" or "OK" to all prompts (this will install the software in your Program Files folder and register it)

4. To read the documentation, download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader from: http://www.adobe.com/prodindex/acrobat/readstep.html

5. Before participating in or playing back a class you will need to download the PowerPoint slides for the specific class. NSC slides can be found here or by clicking on "Course Material" from the NSC homepage

6. The page below provides quick-and-dirty directions that should work under normal circumstances

7. If you encounter problems, contact help@netlab.gmu.edu 703-993-1743
