Online Course Information for Apple Macintosh Users

Students with Apple Macintosh computers that do not support installing the Windows operating system must obtain and install software that allows the Macintosh to emulate a Windows-based PC. The Windows operating system will appear inside a window on the MAC desktop, allowing the user to easily switch between the Windows and the MAC operating systems. After the Windows emulation software is installed, Macintosh users can access the OWP CD-ROMs and take the online courses.
