  • All students need an IBM (Windows) computer and they need administrative rights.

There are 3 programs students need to run and they will need administrative rights to install these 3 programs.

  1. WebEx:  they will need to run WebEx to do the virtual class (VILT). This can surely be done on a non-Windows computer such as a Mac, but they will need to have administrative rights to install it. This is the absolute minimum to do VILT.
  2. Pulse Secure: to do labs they will need to install the Pulse Secure VPN client to connect to our San Antonio lab. The software we give them for this is Windows-based so they will need a Windows computer with administrative rights to install and run this.
  3. Portal: they will need to install Portal to do the labs once connected to the VPN. Portal is also Windows-based, so they will need the Windows computer with administrative rights.
