System Requirements for Online Courses at Mid

Online courses require the use of a personal computer or tablet and Internet access. For best results, we recommend the following:

Internet Connection:

Your online course experience will be greatly enhanced by using a cable modem, DSL, or other high-speed connection. You may certainly access your online courses through your cellular connection, but we recommend that you also have access from a high-speed location such as Mid's computer labs or your local library. Your local library will provide you with high-speed access to your online course. We cannot emphasize enough how your experience will be dramatically better through a high-speed connection. Many online courses offer multimedia components that may require lengthy downloads or video streaming.

Contact the Help Desk with any specific questions.

Operating System:

Please use a recent version of Windows, Mac OS, iOS, or Android.


Please use a modern browser such as Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or Edge.

Some courses require additional software:

To be best prepared, we recommend that you check your course syllabi to see if you are required to use any additional software. If you are unable to download the required software or have problems installing, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.
