Technical Requirements

Minimum requirements for PC

This LMS supports most modern browsers, in particular Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Opera. Other browsers and older version of these browsers, may work, but we recommend using one of these.

Your browser needs to have cookies and JavaScript enabled. The LMS doesn’t require any plug-ins or the downloading of any Active-X components. Internet Explorer users need to permit Active-X execution, as the LMS uses the XML-HTTP component and Internet Explorer supplies this using a built in Active-X control.

It is recommended that you use the navigation tools offered within the LMS interface rather than your browser’s navigation buttons to move around.

You can only have one learning activity active at a time: if you open additional learning activities in a new window or tab (using your browser functions), the previous activity will be de-activated.
