In the context of the pandemic, teachers are preparing to give several distance courses this fall. You will find below the information that will allow you to determine the type of computer you will need in order to be able to follow your courses remotely and use the different software that the College makes available. 
We invite you to provide yourself, by the fall, with a computer mainly dedicated to your studies and to plan a quiet place that promotes concentration.
