If technical difficulties at Longwood University should significantly affect the course, your instructor will communicate with you via the following methods as they are available:
Students must maintain current system software and virus definition updates. The IT Help Desk can assist you with this.
When a file with a virus is detected by our University server it is deleted without the instructor or the student being notified. A link will point to a deleted file that doesn't exist. You may think that you have submitted an assignment, but the instructor has not received it. NOTE: Be sure you have the appropriate virus protection software installed.
We take precautions to prevent technical problems, but they do sometimes occur. Longwood University is not responsible for equipment or system failure/malfunctions outside of the Longwood network or due to war, natural disaster or acts of God. Students are responsible for the purchase, repair, upgrade, and performance of equipment outside of Longwood University.
What will you do if your computer crashes or you lose access to the Longwood Network and you can't access the course? Have a plan for situations like this.
