What kind of computer or equipment will I need?

Taking an online class first and foremost means having a consistently reliable internet access. A home connection isn't required but is encouraged since many courses will use materials that will not be able to be downloaded for offline playback. Much of the content presented in our Learning Management System (LMS) will be designed with mobile users (cellphone & tablet) in mind.

\r\n

However, it is highly recommended students own or have regular use of a desktop or laptop that's no more then 5 years old.

\r\n

Our reasoning is:

\r\n
    \r\n
  1. You will need to run a modern web browser
  2. \r\n
  3. You will be asked to create spreadsheets and documents that will require the use of a keyboard and mouse
  4. \r\n
  5. In working with multiple documents, it may be beneficial to do so with devices that can accommodate larger screen resolutions
  6. \r\n
  7. Our LMS (Moodle) operates most efficiently on desktops & laptops.
  8. \r\n
  9. You may be asked to install a software tool. Most efficiency tools are still being developed for traditional operating systems.
