Technical Requirements:

All Cambrian College courses are supported by a variety of technology that allows students to engage with course material, faculty, and each other through our learning management system called ‘Moodle’ and our primary conferencing tool called ‘Zoom’. Below you will find what is needed to successfully access and participate in Zoom and Moodle. ​Each program also has specific technology requirements. ​

To ensure the technology you are using is adequate to give you the best learning experience possible, be sure to review the technical requirements for your program. The software and tools you need in order to be successful in your program is important to learn. Visit your program’s webpage for full details. ​Minimum technical requirements can be found under the burgundy “Plan your Future” section.
