Students need a computer, Internet access, and an email address to complete courses through MDLP.
1) Computer Skills
Students should have a working knowledge of computers, basic word-processing skills, and experience using the Internet.
2) Internet Service Provider (access to the Internet)
Students/parents are responsible for obtaining a computer and an Internet Service Provider to connect to the Internet. Public computers located in libraries are not good solutions for distance learning courses because students cannot load software and plug-ins to view movies, hands-on interactivities, quizzes, and tests. A computer in good working condition that meets the following requirements is required to take online distance learning courses.
Note: MDLP Technical support is limited to specific issues regarding our courses and website. Any issues arising from the use of ISPs or browsers not recommended by MDLP must be addressed by the student's Internet Service Provider. MDLP technical support is not able to provide support for user installed software that may cause compatibility issues.
3) Computer Requirements
Those planning to take a music, foreign language, or computer essentials class will need a Windows computer.
