In the Purdue Global online learning environment, computer software and hardware allows you to communicate clearly and effectively with faculty, staff, and other students. It is the vehicle by which you submit all course assignments. Without the appropriate software and hardware, you will not be able to access course materials, collaborate with faculty, nor complete assignments for submission and grading.
All social and behavioral sciences courses require Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer, available as a free download (if you do not have PowerPoint already) from this page.
In addition, students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Communication program must have access to a computer with a built-in microphone and webcam or an external headset with a microphone and an external webcam.
Please Note: Purdue Global's Support and Solutions Team is not available to offer guidance or technical support concerning the use of microphones or webcams. Students should understand how to operate the built-in features and/or external equipment prior to using them in the classroom environment.
