University of Phoenix for Everyone, Not Just Microsoft sign now

The University of Phoenix eCampus web site is an atrocity, as are their system requirements. While UoP does not explicitly state that they require Windows, they do explicitly require Internet Explorer 6+ and will only accept work in proprietary Microsoft formats, outright rejecting the free and open source alternatives such as OpenOffice.org and alienating both Linux and Mac users. This is doubly a slap in the face to Mac users since they were likely sold their computers under the premise of being "good for school."

We are sick and tired of forum copy/paste functionality that is broken in every browser but Internet Explorer, iFrames that we can't scroll in mobile browsers, math labs that only work on Windows and instructors who can't comprehend a computing experience that does not rely entirely on Microsoft.

Our demands are simple: If we are to be forced to use the eCampus site and all of the tools it contains then the platform should work across all platforms, or at least the major browsers. Requiring Internet Explorer is no longer a viable option for this or any web site and any school that cannot create a browser-independent web site has no business offering a web design degree.
