Technology Requirements Policy

The Art of Education University provides limited technical support for course-related software applications and online resources. The listed computer requirements are expected to work for most students under most conditions. There could be situations where hardware limitations or software compatibility issues might prevent the university services department from addressing student technical issues. In these cases, it is up to the student to procure third-party assistance handling any technical issues. 

The online learning environment at The Art of Education University comprises multiple technologies working together. This requires that the student’s computer meet the following minimum technical requirements. Students must have ready access to all standards outlined in the Technology Requirements Policy. 

To learn online, AOEU students are required to have basic technological proficiency. Assignments may include but are not limited to word processing, document creation, digital slide presentations, photographing work, and recording video. A mobile device is not a substitute for a desktop/laptop computer and cannot be used to meet all course requirements. 

Failure to meet and maintain these standards may result in removal from courses or the degree program. 


  • Desktop/laptop devices are required for AOEU coursework.
  • Desktop/laptop devices must have Windows 7/8/10 or MacOS 10.10 or above, the capability to produce and record sound via speakers or headphones, and video recording capability.
  • Mobile devices may be used for some, but not all, LMS functions. A mobile device cannot replace a desktop/laptop. The most recent versions of iOS and Android operating systems are recommended.
