Technology Use

During the EHLS program, you will actively use standard office technology as you work on your professional communication skills.

You will use on a daily basis:

  • Microsoft Office Word and Powerpoint for preparing assignments and presentations
  • Email and internet search engines for communication practice and research
  • BlackBoard courseware for class work

All scholars are expected to have basic computer skills before starting the program. Take the Computer Skills Self-Assessment to determine if you have the required skills.

Because office technology is an essential part of the curriculum, the EHLS Program will provide each scholar with a Dell laptop computer. Scholars may keep the laptops upon successful completion of the program.
