Are you ready for online learning?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you currently have access to the internet?
  • Do you have access to or own a personal computer (see technical requirements)?
  • Do you know how to access and browse the internet?
  • Can you use Microsoft Office products (or open Office Products) such as Word and PowerPoint?
  • Can you send emails and attach documents?
  • Can you follow netiquette when completing assignments?
  • Are you motivated to complete tasks on a structured schedule (avoid waiting until the last minute)?
  • Can you complete coursework without direct supervision (work independently)?
