Online Courses

Are you planning on taking an online course? Start here to get an idea of what you need.

Having the proper technology environment needed for your online course is a key element to the success of your online course. Knowing the technology requirements for your course can save you hours of frustration. It will also help technical staff to more easily diagnose any problem you might have.

Before you begin any online course, make sure you understand any specific information your instructor may have provided on what the course requires, and plan accordingly. Trying to upgrade to the proper system requirements in the middle of a course may not be practical, and can lead to wasted effort, money, and unsatisfactory grades.
