Canvas LMS and Browsers

CCC uses the Canvas learning management system. We recommend avoiding mobile devices and instead use a desktop computer or laptop. Canvas is most compatible with Google Chrome or Firefox. Please review other supported browsers and computer requirements.

If a mobile device must be used, CCC cannot guarantee the student will see courses as the instructor intends, or all services will work as expected. Please download Google Chrome or Firefox on your mobile device to make your course engagement the most efficient.

CCC does not recommend using Safari or Internet Explorer. Using Safari or Internet Explorer can limit communication or services offered by your instructor and the institution.

Canvas compatibility can vary based on the mobile device, but Canvas support is available by calling 855-691-502 or through a chat session.
