    • Internet Explorer and Safari are updated through your computer's system updates.  Updates to Chrome and Firefox are installed through those applications.
    • Javascript and cookies must be enabled.
  • high speed Internet connection, either cable or DSL.

To ensure your experience in LIVE is what you and OTTL expect, visit the System Check with each of your devices to ensure that they meet the technical requirements of D2L.

Additional technology requirements may be necessary, depending upon the program you are studying or the courses you are taking.  For example, some courses may require a smart phone or other device capable of taking video to complete projects.  Check the course syllabus at the start of each semester to find any additional requirements.
