Adjunct Instructor Tech Requirements

Last Updated: January 11, 2019

While teaching at or for Martin Luther College, you will be required to own and maintain a device meeting the following minimum requirements (which are based off of the current devices being used by faculty members on campus). You can choose to use whichever device you like and a best-effort attempt will be made by Network Services to help you.

If you have specific questions, please contact Network Services.

Windows Computer

  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • Processor/CPU: Intel Core m3 or AMD equivalent (or faster)
  • RAM: 4 GB minimum/8 GB recommended
  • Storage: 128 GB minimum/256 GB recommended
  • Ports: at least one USB 3.0 A-style connector or adapter (for connecting to our classroom docking stations)

Currently the faculty are using Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (released in 2015) tablets on campus. Older and lower-specced machines may work, but it is recommended to have a newer and faster machine if possible.

Apple Computer

For Apple machines, it is recommended to use a currently-supported device running the latest version of macOS. Here is a list of machines currently supported by macOS Mojave (latest release as of January 2019):

  • MacBook introduced in early 2015 or later
  • MacBook Air introduced in mid 2012 or later
  • MacBook Pro introduced in mid 2012 or later
  • Mac mini introduced in late 2012 or later
  • iMac introduced in late 2012 or later
  • iMac Pro (all models)
  • Mac Pro introduced in late 2013, plus mid-2010 or mid-2012 models with a recommended Metal-capable graphics card

You can find more information on Mojave-compatible Macs on Apple's website. You will also want to be sure that your device has at least one USB 3.0 A-style connector (for connecting to our classroom docking stations).

Chromebooks & Tablets & Other Devices

While it is recommended to have a machine meeting the above requirements, some other devices may work for your teaching. However, the above devices have been tested to be compatible with our presentation systems and work well with Moodle (our online learning environment). If you have specific questions about a device, please reach out to Network Services.
