Ideally, you should have the following:

  1. A computer running PC (Windows 7 newer) or Mac (10.8 or newer)
  2. Ethernet or wireless network card (for high-speed Internet connection)
  3. T1, DSL, cable or satellite high-speed connection
  4. Courses with multimedia may require a sound card, speaker, webcam and/or microphone. (This is specified in the course syllabus.)

Do you either already know how to use Blackboard or can you learn to use applications on the computer easily?

Can you install needed programs or adjust settings on your computer?

If you answered "yes" to all of the above questions, you are likely to do just fine. Actually, online learning is not more difficult or less effective; it's simply different. Once you get used to "going to college" from your home, computer lab or library, you may find the overall experience to be even more rewarding than face-to-face classes.
