Technical Considerations

JCC’s online courses can be accessed with most of today's desktop or laptop computers - both PC and Mac. A high speed Internet connection (DSL/cable) is recommended, especially since you will be uploading and downloading files frequently - and some of the file sizes may be large.

You don’t have to be technologically savvy to take an online course; however, you must be comfortable with your system and be willing to deal with any problems that may arise.

It is your responsibility to have reliable, continuous access to a computer with an Internet connection.  If your car broke down, you would need to find another way to campus to attend your regular classes.  Similarly, you should have a backup plan in case your computer breaks down.  Some common alternatives are a friend or relative’s computer, your local library or computers on campus in the Open Lab (room 6-204) or Melvil Dewey Library.  You can also keep up with your classes using your mobile device

To do well in an online course you should be familiar with the following:

  • Using a web browser
  • Using a word processor
  • Creating, saving, renaming and searching for documents
  • Handling email, including sending email attachments
  • Understanding and respecting netiquette
  • Downloading and installing software
  • Finding information on the Internet
  • Completing online forms
