Remote Course Work

With classes moving entirely online – that’s right, there will be no classes taking place on campus, rather all course work is available via Canvas – we understand the stress you are under moving from face-to-face to remote learning.  Please consider the following necessities as you think about your preparations for adjusting to remote instruction:

  • Access to a computer, Chromebook, or other device capable of accessing Canvas and your Statesman Mail (Outlook).
    • Note: Smartphones and tablets are often not substitutes and lack compatibility or capability necessary for online coursework.
  • Operating System: Windows 8 or higher, Mac OSX 10.13 or higher
  • Software: MS Office 2019 or Office 365 (preferred), Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash o Browsers: Google Chrome (preferred) or Mozilla Firefox (preferred).
    • Note: Popup blockers need to be disabled for Canvas.
  • Access to a reliable and speedy Internet connection.
  • Ability to:
    • Open a browser and locate the website you need.
    • Log into your RBC email, Canvas, and Banner accounts.
    • Open, create, and save a Word document.
    • Open a PDF file.
    • Open, create, and send an email.
