Insight System 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.

PLEASE NOTE:

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.
