Moodle System Requirements

We recommend

  • Desktop Computer (either Windows or Apple) with broadband Internet connection (at least 2Mb is suggested)
  • Moodle can be accessed on web connected Mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android Phone or Tablet).
    Due to the limitations of mobile internet it may not be possible to view all files in your module, load audio/video or upload files.
    4G internet connection (H+ or greater) is suggested as a minimum. It is best to use MobileSafari or Google Chrome browsers.
  • Web browser: Most recent Google Chrome, recent Mozilla Firefox, recent Safari or Edge.
    Disclaimer: Not all Browsers may support all functionalities in Moodle, E.g. Chrome may not support keyboard shortcuts while submitting assignments.
  • The browser must be set to accept ALL cookies and to show the newest version of a page. Select the Wikihow webpage to see how to enable cookies in your web browser
  • Pop-up blocker should be disabled
    Note that some toolbars such as Google and Yahoo! may have popup blockers by default - it is best not to have such toolbars if possible.
  • JavaScript should be enabled

Trouble Shooting


Please download one of these up-to-date, free and excellent browsers:
