Computer Requirements

Supported Browsers: Because it’s built using web standards, Canvas runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser. Canvas supports the most recent versions of Flash and popular web browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 10 and 11
  • Chrome 42 and 43
  • Safari 7 and 8
  • Firefox 37 and 38 (Extended Releases are not supported)
  • Flash 16 and 17 (for recording or viewing audio/video and uploading files)
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser(supporting the latest system requirements)

Required Components: Flash is required in several places in Canvas: media recording/streaming and viewing as well as uploading files to a course or an assignment. Other than these features, Flash is not required to use most areas of Canvas. The Java plug-in is required for screen sharing in Conferences.

Internet Connection: A broadband Internet connection is strongly recommended. Slower connections should still be able to access e-Learning, but will take longer to load. A wired Ethernet connection is more dependable for test-taking than a wireless connection. Special Note about Satellite service: Some users with satellite Internet service may find their online courses do not load quickly or consistently due to satellite network design issues.
