Technology & Support

Learning online requires you to navigate digital resources that sometimes seem complex. From hardware to software and other media, we want to be sure you have the technology and support you need for your Concordia online degree program. Most devices sold within the last two years will meet these requirements, however, Chromebooks do not meet this requirement as they do not have a supported operating system.

Hardware Requirements

  • Standard operating system
    • Officially supported Microsoft Windows or MacOS. Operating systems that are no longer supported by Microsoft or Apple are not recommended.
    • Android is not a standard supported operating system. Thus, Chromebooks do not meet the necessary requirements.
  • Connectivity to high-speed Internet (most applications currently recommend 10 Mbps.)
  • A webcam and microphone, either built in or plugged in to your computer
