The technologies required vary depending on the course. A high speed Internet connection is necessary for courses that have web conferences and streaming videos, and certain software is necessary to view digitized files.
If you plan to access your course(s) from a computer at work
Many organizations have firewalls blocking the ports used by our learning management system. So if you plan to access course websites from work, you may have to make special arrangements with your computer administrator since you will need to confirm that you have access to the correct ports before the term begins. Try to access your course website, as early as possible, from all computers you intend to use.
If your course includes web conferences
For courses that offer synchronous web conferences, you will require a headset (headphones combined with microphone).
