Technology Requirements

UofM Global programs deliver courses with an online course management system called Desire 2 Learn (D2L). At the University of Memphis, we commonly refer to it as eCourseware. The following is a list of the minimum requirements to use our learning management system. Some courses will have more advanced requirements. Information on advanced technology requirements may be found in each course syllabus.

  • Access to a reliable, high-speed Internet connection (DSL or Cable). 
  • Test your browser to ensure it is compatible with our LMS (Learning Management System) using the System Check Wizard.
  • Open PDF files using the free downloadable PDF software.
  • Use Microsoft Office for document creation (available for students via umapps.memphis.edu)
  • Play media content with  Real Player (free), QuickTime (free), or Windows Media Player (free).

See your course syllabus for specifics about required software.
