Taking a DL course requires that the student have access to a computer and have basic Internet skills (browsing, sending e-mail, saving/sending files, downloading files, trouble shooting links and so forth).

There will be times during which you will be required to log in on a specific day (or days) to complete a timed assessment or task. Examples would include quizzes and exams.

This course requires access to a hardwired internet connection and a computer loaded with appropriate software (e.g., Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Quicktime and, if you are using an Apple, an audio converter application such as Flip-4-Mac). You will be emailed a FAQ sheet with additional details before the 1st day of classes.

Additional Notes: When you register for a Distance Education course, including this one, you are responsible for finding immediate alternate access to a computer with internet connectivity should you experience technical difficulties. Options include your home campus, which will have computers for student use, or possibly a public library.

Technical difficulties may include, but are not limited to, problems with a student’s computer hardware or software; inoperability of equipment or lack of service by a student’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Cable provider.

Technical issues DO NOT constitute a valid reason for extension of an assignment, quiz or exam unless it is a confirmed issue with Laulima, or agreed upon by the instructor. To confirm issues with Laulima, the student must immediately contact the Laulima Technical staff by clicking the Request Assistance link at the bottom of all Laulima pages.

Students are required to independently resolve any technical issues with hardware, software, and their ISP or Cable provider while continuing coursework.
