You have two options with your iBook G4:

1) Run VPC and you can then install IE 6 under Windows

2) Just get hold of a Windows PC and run it from that

Well both firefox and Safari are better than IE6.. so IE6 or better.. pretty much includes any browser out there

otherwise DevilBoy has said the options that you have open to you.

Or you can find a PC user that is willing to have Remote Desktop active and you can login to their system using Remote Desktop Connection.. that's the way that I check sites etc using IE.. that option would probably be a bit slow for an online class though.

You could check to see if the classes work in other browsers. My wife took an online class that was IE only and she actually got through it using Firefox...
