Because there are no mandatory video materials for University Road courses, this drive can be a simple USB drive. 

Most of the learning materials that students will be dealing with in their UR courses are compatible with Adobe PDF or Microsoft Office. Our learning platform, Moodle, can be accessed by the latest versions of IE, Safari, Opera, and Chrome, but we recommend that students use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. Note also that although working through a mobile device is not recommended, it is an option. There is no need to purchase software to study at University Road.
