* Internet connection: Cable or DSL is strongly recommended;
* Web browsers (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer) need to be as current as possible;

No. However, you should know how to use your computer; how to save and retrieve files; how to use the simple functions of your word processor; and how to connect to the Internet. You should be comfortable with browsing and searching the Internet as well as using email, including attachments.
What are the benefits of taking online classes?
1. The best of two class types is provided: the convenience of working at home along with the frequent communication with a classroom instructor.
