NBC Online: Dealing with connection problems

Nazarene Bible College is committed to making the online learning experience successful for you. To ensure this, here are the key technical requirements:

  1. You are responsible for your computer system and for choosing an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  2. Should you have difficulty connecting to the Internet, contact the help desk of that Internet Provider for technical support.
  3. Should you have technical difficulties when an assignment is due, you are responsible to find an alternate way to submit your work. This could mean finding another computer to use at work, at a friend's home, at a public library, at a local college or school, or even at a business that offers free Internet to its patrons. You may also be able to mail certain assignments or even print them, scan them or take a photo with your phone and send them that way. NOTE: In any event, when you are having difficulties submitting an assignment or being to read the instructions online, call your instructor (Howard Culbertson's cell phone number -- 405-740-4140).

    To access NBC's programs from another computer such as one at the public library or at your workplace or on a friend's device, go to:

  4. If the NBC Online server is having technical difficulties when an assignment is due, use the alternative arrangements announced by your instructor (in Howard Culbertson's case, use his e-mail at SNU

There are usually multiple options available for getting on the Internet fairly quickly if the service you normally use goes down. Such options include:

Mobile phones can also be set up as hot spots through which a laptop can connect to the Internet.
