All Earth Expeditions students are required to have a valid email address and access to a computer with Internet connection. The reason is that all students also interact via an easy-to-use Web platform. From home or work on their own schedule, students work on the Web with course instructors and classmates to discuss course assignments, develop and present projects, and exchange ideas.
Although our courses have technological requirements, lacking email and a computer with Internet access will not hinder your chance of being accepted to the program. If you are accepted to Earth Expeditions, we can help you establish a free email address. Remember that the Web component of this course is on your own time, so you may be able to use a computer with Internet access in your school's library or at a public library. Don't let the technological requirements bar you from applying. But remember that you'll need to have access to a computer with Internet capability from one to three hours a week.
