Technical Requirements for Distance Learning

Students participating in distance learning are expected to complete coursework on a computer meeting the following minimum requirements:

  • Memory: Minimum 4 GB

  • Hard Drive: Minimum 500 GB

  • Media: DVD +/- RW

  • Network Port: Ethernet port

  • Wireless: 802.11 b/g/n

  • OS: Windows 7 (Recommended)

  • Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013: Highly recommended (we will be unable to offer technical support to earlier versions of this program)

  • Webcam: Recommended

  • Internet: Reliable internet connection required. High speed or DSL connection highly recommended.

Students also should have access to a quiet, dedicated learning space where they can study and complete classwork without interruption.

*For Apple Users: While the Distance Learning program was designed for Windows users, it is possible to complete coursework using Apple devices. However, students should have at least an intermediate-level competency with Mac OS X/iOS functionality, and feel prepared to self-adapt directions written for a Windows operating system. Otherwise, it is highly recommended by the Statler Center that students use a computer running the Windows operating 7 or 10.
