Students are required to have a suitable computer, reliable internet access (a minimum of 5 Mbps UPLOAD speed is required if using the Virtual Lab), a functioning webcam that has both video and audio capabilities, and the ability to print and scan 8-1/2 x 11 inch sheets of paper (at the instructor’s discretion, clear and legible digital photos may be an acceptable alternative to scanning). SRJC does have a first-come-first-served laptop loaner program through SRJC Student Services. Cell phones and the majority of tablets will not suffice. Computers must be capable of running a web browser, Zoom, Microsoft 10, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe Acrobat Pro and Google Earth. Active synchronous visible participation and attendance are required for the entire duration of all lectures and any non-field, online labs. To enable remote access students will be required to install a VMWare client application. Further details will be provided in the course syllabus when available and during the first class meeting. Additionally, in order to run ESRI ArcGIS Products, student computers must meet ESRI minimum system requirements.
