The following tools are required to access all of the content within our learning management system (LMS). Use this page to test your machine for the most up-to-date versions of each.
- Have more than one internet browser. If one fails for inexplicable reasons, you have another to try.
- Equally equip your browsers. Make sure that each broswer can run everything that you want it to.
- Go TABS. Some browsers continuously open new windows. A more modern way to navigate multiple sites is to use tabs (see image at left).
Java is a computer software platform/language that allows web applicaitons to do a whole lot more than what the web can do alone. When your internet browser calls for a java application, it will run Java locally on your computer but access content and resources from the web.
What do you need it for?
You will need Java to watch recorded sessions from your JeffCo teachers. You may also need Java to run some interactive media.

Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Flash is a plugin that allows you to access motion and interactive media. Often, Flash is just the player; that is, a movie is often not encoded in flash, but a Flash video player is the interface through which you navigate (play, pause, stop, etc) and experience the video.
Why you need Adobe Flash.
- Work with text publishers’ interactive materials. Many textbook activities are built in Flash.
