Technology Requirements for Online

Learning and completing your online coursework requires sufficient technology and internet access.

All Universities of Wisconsin online programs use the online learning management system Canvas, which is accessible from nearly any device. However, we recommend using a desktop or laptop computer (rather than tablets or mobile devices) because of their ability to open and run multiple applications for an extended period of time, and their compatibility with and ability to install new applications.

In addition to a computer with up-to-date operating systems (Windows or Mac), it is also recommended that you have:

  • High-speed connection to the internet

  • Speakers and headset or a microphone

  • Webcam (may be required for some courses)

  • Latest versions of Chrome or Firefox

Technical requirements may vary and be specific by campus and/or program. You will want to check the support page at the university you are pursing your degree with.

If you have a slow internet connection, you may want to look for high-speed internet access from an alternate source, such as satellite or wireless offered by a mobile provider.
