What Technology do I Need?

There are two primary tools you will use for your online classes: the web-conferencing tool Zoom and the Learning Management System (LMS) Sakai. To use these tools effectively, you will need the following:

  • A webcam (this can be the webcam already built into your computer)
  • Headphones, preferably with an attached microphone (though you could use the microphone built into your computer)
  • Stable internet connection
  • Access to Zoom
  • Access to Sakai
