Mutual Vulnerability: An Ethic of Clinical Practice

We design our online courses to be accessible to students even with the most limited of technological knowledge. However, to be successful in any online course, including the ones we offer here at William James College, basic computer literacy is required.

Since we know our students come from varied backgrounds, educations, and technological abilities, we have created a list to give you an idea of the technology abilities expected of our CE students. This is not a comprehensive list nor will you necessarily be using these specific skills in your CE course; however, the examples will give you a sense of the type of technology skills needed to succeed.

Here are some examples of things that people with basic computer literacy can do:

-copy and paste
-write and send e-mails, including with attachments
-refresh a webpage
-open a new browser tab or window
-download and save a file to your computer
-use a search engine
-basic word processing skills, including changing fonts

Additionally, online students, compared to their in-person counterparts, need to be particularly self-motivated, proactive, and timely.

Having the right skills for an online program is important but equally essential is to meet the minimum technical requirements.
