Most of Slippery Rock University's distance education courses run on the Desire2Learn Learning Management System. The Desire2Learn system allows faculty to post lectures, homework assignments, exams, conduct online discussions, and more. Desire2Learn is accessible to anyone with regular access to a PC or Mac and a reliable Internet connection.
Desire2Learn works with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari browsers. If you are conserned that your computer may not be able to support Desire2Learn, you can run the D2L System Check.
Depending on the nature of your course, additional hardware or software may be necessary. In many instances, Microsoft Office is required for the creation and vieweing of Word and PowerPoint documents. Microsoft Office 2007 can be purchased for $15 from the SGA Bookstore by all enrolled students, although alternatives such as Apple iLife and Open Office are also acceptable. Consult your instructor if you have any concerns.
