How much bandwidth will I need to stream classes?

You will need 768KB of bandwidth per instance of video streaming. Trying to stream too many classes simultaneously will cause all of the classes being streamed to have poor quality and can also cause buffering pauses—lengthening the time required to show the class. Refer to the table below for the recommended bandwidth.

For example, if you plan to have four classes streaming at the same time, you will need 4 x 768KB bandwidth. If you plan to have more than six instances at once, please contact Customer Service and consult with them about the appropriate bandwidth for your situation.

Recommended Broadband Service
768kbps 1.5 Mbps 2 Mbps 3 Mbps 4 Mbps 5 Mbps
greater than 768kbps greater than 1500kbps greater than 2000kbps greater than 3000kbps greater than 5000kbps greater than 6000kbps

What happens after I order CCO?

  • You will receive a written agreement from BJU Press. Follow the instructions for signing and returning it.
  • Parents will need to sign the Parental Consent Form.
  • Your school will need to provide BJU Press with facilitator information and student information for the classes that you have purchased.
