Online Spring Courses

Students may choose to take online courses in addition to more traditional classroom-based courses, or earn a degree entirely online.

Online courses are presented in a learning management system, Canvas. Canvas supports the last two versions of every browser release. We highly recommend updating to the newest version of whatever browser you are using as well as the most up-to-date Flash plug-in.  Currently (September 2014) Canvas supports:

  • Chrome 36 and 37
  • Safari 6 and 7
  • Firefox 31 and 32 (Extended Releases are not supported)
  • Flash 14 and 15 (for recording or viewing audio/video and uploading files)
