Since the degree is delivered entirely online, students are expected to have a strong online presence. This includes Internet access and some PC-based tools. Students must have reliable access to the Internet via both a web browser and e-mail. It is recommended that students upgrade to the latest version of their preferred web browser.
A particular course may expect the student to use telnet to access a computer resource or ftp to move files across the Internet. Both telnet and ftp software are part of the Windows operating system.
Students are expected to have access to Microsoft Office 2000 or higher. The Project Management Operations course textbook includes a copy of Microsoft Project for educational purposes that the student is expected to install on his or her computer and run.
