eLearning Portal Technology Requirements

The ASSH eLearning Portal is a web based learning tool. Internet connectivity is required at all times to access tests, stream videos, and complete other activities.  As such, successful use of the learning system is browser dependent.  If you encounter difficulty with viewing items in this web-based product, you may first want to try using a different browser.

Preferred browsers:

  •     Google Chrome
  •     Mozilla Firefox 3.0 and above
  •     Safari 5.0 and above
  •     Internet Explorer 7

Note: While Internet Explorer 8 and 9 may be used, occasional issues are experienced.  In those instances, change to a different browser such as Chrome, Firefox or Safari.

Technical Requirements

The eLearning Portal can be viewed on a PC, Mac, iPad and other Internet enabled devices that have multimedia capabilities. For an optimal experience, we recommend a minimum of:

PC: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
Mac: OS X, Lion or above
iPad: Any version
• 512MB RAM
• Processor speed of 800MHz or higher
• 800x600 VGA monitor
