  • Revelation Online students will access all course content and material through the learning management system D2L (Desire2Learn).
  • A Personal Computer (PC) or Tabletfor each student/supervisor (we do not recommend sharing devices).
    • Note to Chromebook and iPad users: While the majority of course content can be viewed using a Chromebook or iPad, Revelation Online recommends a PC backup to ensure access to all course material across our school.
    • Note to MAC/iOS/Safari users: Due to the way Safari handles third-party cookies, Single Sign-On authentication will not work in Safari web browser. Please use an alternate web browser on your device, we recommend Google Chrome.
