You are also required to have a flash drive on which you can back up your course work.

You will need a computer with strong Internet access and a microphone. Many computers come equipped with an internal mic. If your computer does not, you will need to purchase an external one.

Students will need to use their SNU provided email program for many assignments during this course. It won't be adequate to merely forward that address to another one. You will need to log into webmail.snu.edu. If you cannot, contact the IT Department at 405-491-6396.

This is a technology course which relies heavily on a computer with the most current software and capabilities. It will be the responsibility of the student to assure access to the tools necessary. A strong Internet connection is essential.

There is also an optional live class session provided on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm. It is helpful to have a microphone and webcam for these sessions as well. Students are encouraged to participate via a wired connection rather than wireless when possible.

Students should be prepared to take a proctored exam. No fee associated with the exam.
