Browser recommendations

This site has been optimised to run in a variety of different browsers listed below. The site may work in other browsers, however, we are unable to offer any further support in these situations. The following icons are provided to download the latest versions if it is available to you.


HTML5 is a modern technology that allows browsers to display complex animations and graphics without the need for plug-ins. Most modern browsers (including browsers on mobiles and tablets) have good HTML5 support, so if your browser is kept up to date you shouldn't have an issue with HTML5 content. You can check if your browser is up to date by visiting:

Screen resolution

Screen resolution is the number of pixels (or dots) on the screen at once. The higher your screen resolution, the more screen space you have. The recommended screen resolution for e-learning is at least 1024 x 768px. If you have a screen resolution of less than this, you may not see the whole screen, or you may have to scroll to see the page. If your machine is set to something other than the recommended resolution you will not be prevented from accessing the e-learning content, although the display may be impaired.


Pop-ups are new windows that 'pop-up' on screen when you click something; for example an internet link. Some browsers now block this from happening as they have been used in the past to display advertisements.

Some e-learning courses need to open a window to display further content. If pop-ups are blocked on your PC, content may not display correctly, and in some cases your progress may not be tracked. For each browser we have provided a guide on how to disable the pop-up blocker.
