Please note that in addition to a three-hour, in-person class, World Literature uses Canvas "an online course management tool" to communicate with students, provide course material, distribute assignments, etc. If students can bring a computer to campus, then that would be helpful. For those who do not bring a computer with them to campus, several computing clusters are available. They are equipped with PCs and Macs, printers, and scanners.
