If your system is not on this list, or if you have any other technology questions, call the eCornell Help Desk at 1.800.801.0287 (+1.607.330.3200 from outside the United States) for assistance.
What Computer Skills Will I Need?
Our online courses require just a few computer skills to get you off and running. You'll need to be able to connect your computer to the Internet and use a web browser (see minimum requirements above). You'll also need to be able to send and receive email (including sending messages with files attached), and use a discussion board and chat tool. (Our discussion board and chat software include online help.) With basic online skills, you'll be able to work efficiently and concentrate on the material you are here to learn.
If you think you need to sharpen your technological skills, many websites provide free tutorials.
