Required Hardware:

This may sound ridiculous, but from my experience it is worth saying: You must have a computer in good working condition. If you are having any problems with your computer have it repaired before starting this course. If your computer is not working you are, from an online perspective, absent from class. There are so many exciting things happening in this online class, you do not want to be absent.

You will need to have Microsoft Office 97 or higher installed on your computer, especially WORD and PowerPoint.

All assignments must be submitted in Microsoft Word ONLY.
No other word processing program is acceptable.
