Basic computer competence is required of all students. Familiarity with the Internet and worldwide web is also required, so that students are able to navigate to find information and perform web searches. In addition, students must be able to make full use of the Blackboard course delivery system.
Students must have a reasonably up-to-date computer, a reliable broadband Internet connection, and an up-to-date web browser. Mozilla Firefox is recommended.
***Microsoft Explorer does NOT work well with the Blackboard course delivery system, and Apple Safari has some problems with the current version of Blackboard.
Students must be able to submit files in Microsoft Word format.
For assignments in some courses students will need to use a video camera.
