Technology Requirements

To have a successful educational experience, students will need to have access to technology and basic technological skill.

Technology Hardware

  • Desktop Computer - a tablet may be sufficient for some tasks, but every student will need access to a reasonably up to date desktop or laptop computer.
  • Web Camera and Microphone - for online and distance courses, students will need a machine capable of running web conferencing software.
  • Internet Connection - for online courses, students need a reliable internet connection with at least 1.5 Mbps download speed.

Software and Skills

  • Word processor - for writing papers, DTS students will need access to a program such as Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or Google Docs.
  • Chrome Web Browser - students may use a variety of web browsers, but we have found Google Chrome to be the most reliable.
  • Technology Skills - all students will be expected to write research papers. Those taking online courses will also need to use video recording, engage in discussion groups, and learn other technological skills.

Training at DTS

  • The DTS Media Center located in Turpin Library on the Dallas campus provides technology training on site and online.
