What level of computer skills do I need for online learning?

It is not necessary to have a high level of computer proficiency, but you should have some computer experience navigating the Internet, using e-mail, and using a word-processing program. Reasonable typing speed will also be helpful, as in addition to typing assignments, you will be typing emails, postings to online discussions, etc. See the Orientation to Online Learning for an assessment of where your computer skills are and to access tutorials, as needed. You may also use Naturally Speaking software to type for you.
