Technology Recommendations

Distance Learning Connectivity

If your role requires you to participate via the Internet from off-campus, please be aware that the quality of your connection is impacted by a number of issues that are outside of Messiah University's control.

  • Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may impose limits on customer connection speeds that are unsuitable for videoconferencing. (See this list regarding ISP ratings and quality of service, specifically the upload/download speeds they provide, is most important; higher is better)
  • Whether your ISP delivers access to your area with Cable or Fiber
  • The capabilities and age of your modem (older is often unable to take advantage of higher speeds)
  • A wired connection to your router/modem is highly recommended for video conferencing.
