Web Browsers

All modern Web browsers*. Here are some examples:

  • Windows: Google Chrome 29 or later
  • Mobile: The functionality of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices may be limited and they are not guaranteed to meet all your coursework needs. We recommend a laptop or desktop be used when learning online with WCI

Important: Browser cookies and JavaScript must be enabled, and popup blockers must be disabled. Avoid older versions of Internet Explorer such as: IE 11.

Audio

Since our courses use audio, students using a computer will require a sound card with external speakers or headphones.

Email

Communications between students and WCI are distributed by email. Students must have access and verify their email regularly while taking a course. This email account will also be used as your student number (account number) within the WCI platform.

Be sure to white list our email domain, woundscanada.ca (sometime email providers like Hotmail use the term "Safe Senders" to refer to a white list).
