Having an active email account is essential even to sign up for an online class (you need one to set up your account).
If you do not have an email account and regularly do not use email this is usually an indicator that you are not proficient at using computers and the internet. If this is the case, it is strongly recommended that you take two classes prior to signing up for your first online class. The first is CAOT-97, this class covers both the Internet and how to use Email. The second is CAOT-133 , this is a course onHow to Succeed in and Online Class. You will find them both in the schedule of classes.
OK, say you are a good at using the Internet, but you have let your email account lapse. If you do not have a currently active one, you can get one free from http://hotmail.com , http://yahoo.com , or http://gmail.com . If you have an email already, you can use it in your online class.
