Online Courses and Software
Taking an online course requires a student with motivation and access to the necessary pc and software requirements. If you are new to taking courses online, you also may want to take an online orientation workshop, offered in the Haynes building at the beginning of the semester. This will help you get up to speed on how to use Moodle to navigate your online course. Find out more about specific online courses.
Courses may have required or suggested software. Much of the software we use is also offered for free or at significant discounts to students. Online courses may have special software requirements as well.
