You must use a desktop computer or laptop. Our webinars will not perform properly on Notebooks, iPads and smartphones. To ensure a better experience with the D2L network, we recommend the following, regardless of which operating system you are using:

  • Memory (RAM): 2GB or more
  • Wireless Card: 802.11b/g/n or 802.11ac
  • Ethernet Card: 10/100 capable

Our wireless network uses a network access management software called SafeConnect. This helps to ensure our student computers are meeting some recommended standards to prevent virus outbreaks. SafeConnect supports the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows Vista (supported but not recommended)
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 10
  • Mac OS X 10.8
  • Mac OS X 10.9
  • Mac OS X 10.10

Any beta versions of operating systems are not supported (example: Windows Technical Preview or Mac OS X Public Beta). As operating systems are updated, SafeConnect is updated to support them. Occasionally, there will be a delay between operating system updates and SafeConnect Support. Although devices running iOS, Android, Chrome OS, and Windows RT are recognized on the network and will work, the D2L Online’s lockdown browser will not work on the operating system.
