Getting Started - Technology Requirements

Distance learning programs are offered through interactive internet technologies. Hardware and software requirements vary from course to course, but minimally include:

  • access to a high-speed broadband Internet connection
  • a personal computer with an up-to-date operating system (Windows Vista or higher, or Mac OS 10.7 or higher)
  • a modern web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer)
  • a headset with an attached microphone
  • a quiet place to "attend" class (virtually) without interruption
