Browsers and Settings

What is a Browser?

A web browser is software that allows you to access websites and resources on the World Wide Web. Common browsers are Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. LearnatWork is compatible with most current browsers.

It is highly recommended that you are using a current version of at least one (but recommended 2) supported browsers on your computer/device. To check the version of your browser or to download an additional browser, see WhatBrowser.org

The following browsers are generally compatible with LearnatWork.

  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Opera
  • Safari

Note:

  • Internet Explorer may cause problems with file downloads, running errors, assignment completion,levels of interactivity using discussion board forums, and creating and editing content.
  • Older versions of Firefox may not display all PDFs or videos properly. We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • Opera does not show built-in html editor (WYSIWYG).
  • Safari does not show built-in html editor (WYSIWYG).

For Learnatwork to work properly, we recommend the following updates and settings since some of the courses use pop-up windows, therefore you will need to disable pop-up blockers in your browser or toolbar. To make these updates in;

  • Firefox go to your navigation bar and click on Tools/Options or in IE go to Tools/Internet Options.
  • Safari click the Apple Menu/Software Update to update Java, to enable Cookies select Preferences/Privacy and for Pop-ups select Safari.

For optimal performance, we recommend you select the following settings:

  • Pop-ups: enabled
  • Cookies: enabled
  • Screen Refresh: set your browser to refresh on each visit to this site
