Students taking online or hybrid courses at Porterville College are expected to have a computer with a modern operating system, and a modern web browser. Students must also have access to a reliable internet connection, preferably a broadband connection. Students may also use the computers located in the computer commons at the main campus. Students may wish to occasionally use their mobile device to access some elements of their online or hybrid course. However, mobile access may not be supported for every aspect of a course, so having an Internet capable computer is still a necessity for online and hybrid students. Some classes may require additional hardware or software. Refer to the course description or the course syllabus for details.
