Student Resources

  • Resources for Taking Online Classes
  • How to Create and Join a Class Using Skype for Business
  • Possible Resources for Free Internet Access
    Check local sources that may offer wireless internet connectivity:

    1.  At least two internet service providers (Comcast, Charter Spectrum) have announced limited-time programs for in-home internet service.  Check with your local provider to see if they have such a program for this period of time.

    2.  Individual cities and counties in Indiana may provide wireless access to the public for free.  For example, the Monroe County Public Library website has information on wireless locations provided by local providers in that county.  Terre Haute has a TerreHauteFree wireless service that can be accessed from locations near Wabash and 7th Street.

  • Testing Your Home Internet Access
    Make sure your home network is ready to go if you are working from home.
    Test your internet service by going to speedtest.net (it’s free) and select Purdue (West Lafayette or Terre Haute, IN – Joink, LLC) when running the speed test.
