Technical Requirements


Internet Connection

Access to a reliable Internet connection is required for this course. A problem with your Internet access may not be used as an excuse for late, missing, or incomplete coursework. If you experience problems with your Internet connection while working on this course, it is your responsibility to find an alternative Internet access point, such as a public library or wifi hotspot. If you anticipate that you will have connectivity problems while taking this course, please contact me right away so we can discuss your situation.

Multimedia Requirements

Before you begin working through the course content, you need to make sure the computer you are using is configured properly for the multimedia that you will encounter. Below are specifications and tests to help make sure everything is in working order.

Video files

We have tried to replace all (or we are in the process of doing it) Flash movies and turned them into Quicktime videos or another format that is universally compatible, such as youtube. Any time you can't see a video let me know. You can post to Questions? or just shoot me an email. This helps me find and fix all the stale links. I usually find them myself but sometimes I miss them, or I can play them but other browsers can't.
