Your instructor may let you know if any of these 3rd party tools might be useful for your course.
Note - Be careful when installing or updating applications. Sometimes an unwanted toolbar or extra program may install also by default unless you deselect the options.
Your instructor will let you know if you will be using any other specific course content resources. There may be specific technical requirements for those systems. For example:
Mediasite videos are used by some instructors in their courses. To view these videos, you may need to add a free Silverlight plug-in from Microsoft and adjust some browser settings:
Internet Explorer- you may get a firewall warning, even when on-campus, prompting you to allow access.
Chrome- not currently recommended; likely will not work at all.
Firefox- Version 52 and newer likely will not work at all. Version 51 (on-campus older version) you will need to enable/activate the plugin - Silverlight.
Safari- enable/activate/install or update the plugin / Silverlight.
