Technology Access and Use for Faculty

Faculty teaching online courses need to have consistent and predictable access to the same technology as is required for student participation. Course design and technology requires access to high-speed Internet access (DSL, cable modem, or satellite). Please refer to the World Campus list of “Technical Requirements” to make sure that you meet the technical requirements.

For technical assistance with your online course, contact your Dutton Institute learning designer.
