Your student simply needs a reliable computer with a recent version of an internet browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and a strong internet connection.  All WHA technology runs within the browser on your individual machine.  Tablets or other mobile devices are also supported, but in some cases with a reduction in ease of use.  Note also that access control plug-ins (“nanny software”) may have to be configured to allow access to both the live classroom environment and various features of Canvas, the Learning Management System.
