Downloading and Installing the FirstClass Software - Macintosh

While you can access most of FirstClass's features by logging in through the web, it is best to install the actual client software on your home/personal computer. The client software is what is used in the school buildings and is easier to use than the web version. This software is free, and available for Windows and Mac operating systems.
