The ability to access Internet-based resources during classroom educational activities is an invaluable resource for meeting objectives and achieving curriculum outcomes. In addition to these mandatory minimum laptop requirements, students will need a built-in or USB web cam.
Our program recognizes that lifelong learning requires students to embrace and effectively use computer technology. Examples of laptop use include presentation of educational content, student collaboration, and assessment of student understanding and progress.
Specific uses may include:
Expected competencies include:
Students are responsible for maintaining their personal laptop computer software and
hardware. Hardware or software failure will not excuse students from course responsibilities.
Students are responsible for all software installs and updates required for course
management and network connectivity.
An IT Checklist will be provided to all bridge MPA students at the start of enrollment. Students are responsible for completing the checklist before starting course work.
