What kind of computer do I need?
Just about any computer. NOTE: St. Louis
College of Health Careers does not recommend netbooks (such as Chromebook) for classwork. The
important things are your web browser and connection type. Supported browsers
(Minimum standards): Google Chrome 11, Firefox 4, Safari 5, or Microsoft Edge. Chromium works but is not officially supported. Other
browsers have not been tested with Moodle. Microsoft Internet Explorer is no longer supported.
Any stable Internet Connection will work. For timed tests, a wireless connection may not be advised.
What kind of software will I need access to?
You will need Microsoft Office or an Open Source Office Suite and Adobe Reader. Adobe reader is a free download from Adobe.com. Microsoft Office Student Edition will work for all areas of study. Students are provided an Office 365 Education account. The web apps will work for almost every class.
LibreOffice and WPS Office are Open Source Office suites available for free downloads for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers.
What about from my phone/tablet?
Moodle will adjust to different sizes of screens. Just open slchconline.com in your mobile
browser. File uploads may be more
difficult from mobile devices.
Due to connection issues beyond the control of St. Louis College of Health Careers, it is suggested you do not take timed tests on a phone or tablet.
What about the computers on campus?
Computers in the computer labs on campus are available for students to use during normal business hours.
