The System Check is designed to ensure your computer system is properly configured for your online courses on Moodle at Lasell College. It verifies your operating system, web browser version, browser settings and display settings on your computer.
The System also provides download links if you need any plug-in software that your courses require.
For Windows, we recommend that you use windows 2000, XP or later operating system.
For Mac, we recommend that you use Mac OS X or later for your operating system.
Web Browser:Even though you may access Moodle via any browser, it is recommended that you choose a browser that supports integrated HTML editor on Moodle. This is a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) editor with an interface similar to you would see in most word processing applications.
This in-line HTML editor will only appear if you use Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Netscape. If you do not use one of these browser types, you can still use Moodle just fine, but without the luxury of a WYSIWYG editor. As a result, we highly recommend to use up-to-date Firefox or Internet Explorer on Windows operating system, and to use Firefox on Windows and Mac system.
Please note that: neither Safari nor Opera on Mac computers accommodate the use of integrated WYSIWYG text editor on Moodle.
Cookie:Cookie must be enabled in your web browser for some of Moodle features to work.
Screen Resolutions:A minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels is required for better viewing purposes on Moodle.
