D2L Technology Requirements


 ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​System Requirements

D2L is committed to performing key application testing when new browser versions are released. However, due to the frequency of some browser releases, D2L cannot guarantee that each browser versi​on will perform as expected. Supported browsers are the latest or most recent browser versions that are tested against new versions of D2L products. Your system must have Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or greater to use the Record Audio and Record Video features. Ensure that your browser has ​JavaScript and Cookies enabled. Java is no longer a core requirement for D2L, however, some classes may utilize software which requires its use.
