YOUR TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS

You can access our program on all current Windows, Mac OS, Android and iOS devices as long as they have access to broadband internet with at least 10GB of data per month per student. We recommend the Apple MacBook Air 13 as the easiest to use computer for a distance education student.

You can access our program through a tablet such as an iPad, which can be useful when it comes time to doing multimedia projects like movie making, audio interviews, and other creative tasks. However, we would not recommend attempting to complete the program without any access to another desktop or laptop device.
