A home computer with high-speed access is most convenient and reliable for taking an online course. However, since our online system is designed to work with most personal computers that have Internet access, school computer labs, public libraries and other such locations may provide the access you need. Just be sure that if you plan to rely on these resources, that they are available to you at the times you are most likely to access them. Lack of access will not be an acceptable reason for not completing course work.
The following page lists the technical requirements for eCollege online courses. On this page is a Browser Test which checks the version of your Internet Browser and lets you know what software or plug-ins you may need to install. This page also provides links where the required software may be downloaded free of charge.
Some specialized courses may require additional software. Any special needs or requirements will be detailed in the course description and required texts.
