Prior to enrolling in an online course at
City College of San Francisco, we recommend that you review
the following requirements.
Sound card (class specific, check with your instructor)
Windows 2000, XP
Windows XP or higher
MAC OS X 10.4
MAC OS X 10.5 or higher
Computer requirements for some online
courses may exceed the minimum requirements. Please contact
your instructor for specific requirements.
CCSF uses a Course Management System (CMS) named Insight based on Moodle, an
open source software package
for online classes.
It does not need to be downloaded.
It is installed on a web server
that is accessed by users assigned a unique login and password. The Insight System Requirements page runs an automatic browser check with results and links for downloading plugins.
Your instructor may have further requirements.
For example, if you are taking a language class, your instructor
may recommend that you have a microphone. Please send your
instructor an email to ask about further requirements. Email addresses for online instructors are
linked from the Courses
page. Click on the name of the course you are taking. Your
instructor's email link will be on this page.
