What technology do I need to take an online course?

If you have never taken an online course before, you will need an up-to-date computer, with a Windows or Mac operating system. The following are recommended:

Microsoft Windows Windows 7 or above
Macintosh OSX 10.8 or above

You will also need a high-speed Internet connection (such as AT&T, Comcast, or Wi-Fi).  In some classes that utilize web-conferencing, a headset may also be required. 

Install more than one web browser (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are recommended). You will also need Plugins, such as Java, Adobe Acrobat Reader, a Flash player, etc.

Please open the internet browser checker page to see if your internet browser is supported and/or if additional plugins are required.
