Technology Requirements

Since all courses are online, it will be necessary for you to have a dedicated connection to the Internet with sufficient bandwidth to handle streaming videos. This means at minimum a 56Kb connection. Your computer also should be reliable and of sufficient power to handle general web content and receive streaming videos. You should devise a backup plan in case your Internet connection would be disrupted or your computer would have problems so your studies can continue.

It may also be advantageous if you have access to a tablet/e-reader for reading ebooks and online texts. This isn’t a requirement, but it would give you easier reading access to the EuNC OverDrive library and also allow you to purchase your texts in ebook format which may save some money but will save time in getting the books to you.

Thirdly, you will need to have an email account as this is often the way we communicate with you outside of the use of Moodle. This can be a current account, work account (if your employer allows it) or we can give you an EuNC email account upon request.
