Post the Minimum Technology Requirements for your Course
Why? Students deserve, early in the course, some way to check to make sure they have sufficient technology to complete the course. Outline general requirements for Internet connectivity and active Blackboard accounts, as well as course specific technology requirements. Informing students early in the course exactly what technology is required will solve the issue of students stating they were not informed. TWU offers a list of technology specifications at: http://www.twu.edu/dl/Prospective_Students/computer_reqs.htm You may wish to link to this statement about minimum technology requirements so as technology requirements change, your information about the requirements is updated for you.
