Which browser?

The recommended browsers for the VLE are:

  • Internet Explorer 8*/Firefox 3.6 (Windows)
  • Safari 5/Firefox 3.6 (OSX)

*Internet Exporer 8 should not be run in Compatability Mode.

When using Internet Explorer 7 performance is generally slow, particularly when pages load for the first time. Users will also notice some page layout issues, notably when selecting dates with the calendar (the colum headings are in the wrong place). Staff will find drag and drop functionality intermittently fails.

The staff desktop will be updated to IE8 later in the Summer. In the meantime you may wish to use the Firefox browser.

Our FAQs include more information about the recommended specifications.
