Because they're built using web standards, our cloud services, like Canvas and Panopto, run on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser.
These programs generally support the last two versions of every browser release; however, for the best experience, we highly recommend that you use Chrome or Firefox as your browser. Safari, Internet Explorer, and Edge do not support many of the features of these programs. For instance, Internet Explorer and Edge will often not allow you to submit an assignment.
You may need to upgrade your browser software with plug-ins to take full advantage of all the media elements of these programs. The plug-ins below are required for most online courses. However, you may already have these plug-ins installed on your computer. If you are using a PC on campus, these plug-ins should already be installed. If so, there is no need to download and install them again. If you have difficulty with downloading and installing these plug-ins, contact the MU IT Help Desk at the number below. Please note that after downloading these programs, you will need to install them on your computer.
Some programs require pop-ups to be enabled to work properly. Click here for instructions on how to enable pop-ups.
Remember, if these programs are already installed on your computer, you do not need to download and install them again.
