This is an online course. Students will be required to have routine access to a computer that is connected to the Internet (we recommend a high speed connection such as DSL or cable modem). You are also required to have a recent version of Microsoft Office Suite or comparable program to include Microsoft Word (word processing), Excel (spreadsheets), and PowerPoint (presentations) in order to both view and create documents needed to participate in this course.
Some activities in this course may also require you to download current plug-ins such as Adobe Reader or Flash for viewing certain content. Most computers may already have some version of these installed, but it’s important to have the most current version.
