Technical Requirements

Use the browser checker to see if Canvas Learn supports your browser and operating system. The checker will run automatically when going to the Supported Browser and Computer Requirements for Canvas.

Ideally, you should have the following:

  1. A computer running PC (Windows 10 newer) or Mac (10.8 or newer)
  2. Ethernet or wireless network card (for high-speed Internet connection)
  3. T1, DSL, cable or satellite high-speed connection
  4. Courses with multimedia may require a sound card, speaker, webcam and/or microphone. (This is specified in the course syllabus.)

Do you either already know how to use Canvas or can you learn to use applications on the computer easily?

Can you install needed programs or adjust settings on your computer?

If you answered "yes" the questions above, you are likely to do just fine. Actually, online learning is not more difficult or less effective; it's simply different. Once you get used to "going to college" from your home, computer lab or library, you may find the overall experience to be just as rewarding as face-to-face classes.
