Technical Requirements for Web-based Courses

Web-based Component Requirements

For courses, you need to have:

  • A computer that meets the specifics shown below
  • Internet access
  • A compatible Internet browser 

Internet Browser Recommendations

 
  1. Google Chrome works best for elearning on Microsoft computers (download here)
  2. Safari is the embedded browser in Apple products and should be used

You may experience inconsistent video streaming with Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. 
 

Ensure That Your Computer Is WCEI E-Learning Ready

These are minimum system requirements; other environmental factors may impact your course delivery performance.

Personal Computers

Your computer must minimally have a recent Windows operating system or Mac OSX; CPU of 400 MHz or faster; and, screen resolution of at least 1024x768. Most modern computers easily meet these criteria.

Adobe Flash - Webinars Only

  • Our full wound care courses do not require Adobe Flash. 
  • Many of our webinars are Adobe Flash Player based. The most common errors are a "No Playable Source" message, no video or no audio.  Most browsers are now embedding Flash in a disabled state.  Browser vendors change the methods of enabling periodically so do an Internet search for the up-to-date approach for your browser.

Mobile Devices

iPads: Webinars are not guaranteed to play on tablets. For full courses, use the Safari browser available on all Apple devices.
Android Devices: We had good results with Mozilla Firefox on Android devices. It is available at the Play Store on your device for free.

 

Nearly all “newer” computers easily meet these standards. However, if you’re on an older computer please double check them carefully.
