Why do I need a webcam or camera?
Students will complete many assignments by creating video clips. These video clips will be in the form of webcam video-mails or video files from a camera uploaded to a class website.
Students will also receive most feedback in the form of video clips from instructors. These feedback video clips will be viewed by students on the course websites.
Therefore, to be able to take online courses, students must:
- own or have access to a computer
- own or have access to either:
- a webcam with microphone
- a digital camera
- regular access to the internet
