Devices and Technology

As an online college, technology powers everything we do at Calbright. The best technology for your education is simple, available, and easy to use.

Our technology is provided for free. You won’t have to pay for any course materials or access to tech. Often we use publicly available platforms that you may already be familiar with.


You’ll need a computer and reliable internet to take online classes.

If you don’t have a laptop or a reliable internet connection, Calbright has a lending library offering both Chromebooks and wifi hotspots to enrolled students who need them. 

If you do have a computer and internet access, you can take a computer readiness test and test your internet speed to see if your equipment will work for online classes.


If you can use the Chrome internet browser, Google docs, Google sheets, and Zoom, you’re already familiar with 80% of the programs you’ll ever use at Calbright.
