  2. Software required to use course materials is listed with links to where it can be captured and installed. (E.g., Adobe Acrobat Reader link provided within the CMS.)
  3. If publisher materials are required, instructions on how to register and navigate this platform are provided in the CMS.
  4.  Links for software or publisher materials are located within the course where learners will use them (I.e. near the materials requiring their use).
  5. Only software supported by the institution is used in the course. Instructor has included information for students on where they can obtain help (I.e. Moodlerooms support, NetTutor, Proctorio).
