Setting Up Your Computer to Access Online Courses
SkillPort is an interactive web application with some specific technical requirements:
SkillPort supports several browsers. IT Support Services supports a few of these browsers:
- On a PC running Windows XP, Vista, or 7 you should use Firefox 5.x or higher or Internet Explorer 8.0 or above with all Windows Updates.
- On a Macintosh running OS X you should use Safari 3.2.2 or higher.
- Please check the vendor website for the latest information on supported operating systems and browsers. (As of 8/22/2013, the CSU is running SkillPort version 7.3)
Java is a free plug-in which allows SkillPort to add interactivity and other functions to the online learning experience. Java Version 5.0 or higher is required to access the online course content. We recommend you download a new version if you experience any problems. Read more about Java Security and campus recommendations.
