Students in most professional development programs must have access to a computer and the Internet to complete the coursework required to earn the Certificate of Achievement.
Minimum System Requirements for Online Courses
The online courses are delivered through Blackboard Collaborate. Before you get started in a Blackboard Collaborate session, you should ensure that your computer is able to support the needs of the collaboration environment. As a first-time user, to test whether your computer is ready to access Blackboard Collaborate, visit https://help.blackboard.com/Collaborate/Ultra/Participant and click on “How do I get started”.
Connecting to Blackboard Ultra
Students in online format courses must have the following:
Headset or earbuds with a microphone attached to your computer
High-speed Internet connection (Ethernet preferable)
Google Chrome or FireFox (versions 49+) installed on your computer*
Blackboard Ultra can be accessed on a mobile device. The Blackboard app is available on iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices. Join the webinar directly from your session link in Canvas — the app will open automatically. Please be sure to use your earbuds or headphones, as your built-in speakers may cause echoes during the recorded session.
