Internet and Computer Requirements

You will need reliable and consistent Internet access (WiFi or wired) that is strong enough to participate in video Zoom sessions and stream video recordings  from a computer
Please see this document to learn more about how to reduce problems staying connected to Zoom meetings and to improve the quality of the meeting.

  • Ideally, the computer should be equipped with a microphone and camera that is either built-in or externally connected through USB or Bluetooth.
  • If no camera and microphone capabilities are available through the computer, a mobile device with those capabilities can substitute.

Note: A mobile device will allow you to communicate with your professors and other students and to review information on Moodle, but they will not, in most cases, be sufficient to complete your coursework.

Please email the Help Desk with any concern you have about your ability to access a computer or the Internet to complete your coursework.

Moodle

Professors will use Moodle to share course materials and manage assignments and exams. Login to Moodle at https://moodle.lakeforest.edu to see the latest updates for your classes. If you have difficulty accessing materials in any of your courses, reach out to your professor right away.

Moodle has recently been updated to provide a great learning experience for students.

Zoom

All students have access to a Pro-level Zoom account for this semester. Zoom is used for remote access to class meetings, for faculty office hours, and for group activities.
