The student is expected to know how to troubleshoot personal computer problems and have a working computer with stable internet service and access to EvCC email and CANVAS (used by EvCC to support online, hybrid, and web-enhanced courses). It is also recommended every student regularly back up computer files to either an external hard drive or USB drive.
Even if you are computer literate but are new to CANVAS, recognize that you may still have a learning curve. If you have problems, please make sure that you ask questions proactively (especially to other students who may have lready experienced and solved the problem you’re dealing with), be patient with yourself as you learn, and utilize the multitude of resources that the EvCC Distance Learning Department offers.
