Minimum Technology Requirements:
Students enrolled in East Central University’s online courses must have reliable access to a computer and high-speed Internet access. E-mail and Internet connections are a primary means of participating in courses and are thus necessary and significant contributors to academic success.
Students enrolled in online courses are expected to have basic operational skills in using Blackboard, internet web browsers, Microsoft Suite 365, generic computer technical skills and programs listed by the instructor in the course syllabus. Any issues running programs are expected to be taken care of promptly by the student by contacting IT (ECU, Blackboard or additional IT resources listed in your syllabus) at the linked and listed contacts in the Blackboard course shell.
