We recommend high speed broadband or DSL Internet connection when taking a course online. The faster and more reliable your Internet connection, the better your online course experience will be.It is also recommended that a hard wired connection be used especially when submitting assignments and taking tests.Wireless connections are less stable and have been known to have interruptions in the connection causing problems when submitting an assignment or exam.
