Our e-learning modules run in a web browser and should work across most platforms. However, we have had to test against a standard office environment and can only guarantee that they will work on the following technical specifications:

PC minimum hardware specification

  • Platform: IBM PC Compatible
  • Processor: Pentium III or equivalentProcessor speed: 500 MHzRAM: 256 Mb
  • Screen resolution: 1024x768
  • Sound Card: Included with headphones as a minimum
  • Input devices: Mouse and keyboard

End user PC software specification

  • Operating systems: Windows XP SP2 and SP3
  • Browser: IE 6, 7 and 8
  • Firefox 3.6

  • Other software: Adobe Acrobat v7 or Foxit Reader for Windows
  • Word 2002
  • Assistive technologies: Jaws v9.03 and v10 (for use with the Word doc versions of the topics)

This course will be accessed across the internet by various users in various locations. As such, we cannot predict what their available bandwidth might be. Epic recommends that a broadband connection be used to access the course.

The video files are likely to be the largest files that the course will contain. To ensure they play satisfactorily, care will be taken to ensure the size and duration of these files is appropriate.

Screen resolution
The course is designed for a minimum screen resolution of 1024x768. The course content size will be 980x640 to ensure that all content can fit on screen in all supported browsers.

Known issues
We have had issues running the e-learning modules with browsers that use pop-up blockers and with software such as Norton Security. As the modules launch in a new browser window, these should be disabled while running the course.

Transcripts for the modules are available on request for people with disabilities who wish to follow the modules.

If you have any questions about any of these requirements, please contact us at info@thensmc.com.
