FLVS System Requirements

Due to the wide array of technologies in our over 100 courses, there are some limitations to browsers and devices we can support.  At present, we test and verify a wide variety of devices and have ongoing programs to migrate away from any technologies that are not compliant with newer mobile platforms.

Lightweight devices such as Apple iPads, Google Chromebooks, and tablets have limited support for Java or Flash which still appear in a small percentage of our catalog.  FLVS is working to de-flash our remaining course content.  Students will need extra work-around steps or alternate browsers to engage with some portions of those courses.  We recommend students have a Windows or Mac based computer available to complete coursework in the event that your selected mobile device does not meet the needs of the course.

Some courses may have different or additional requirements to the one listed on this page. For specific System Requirements for your course, go to the Material List page in the Course Information tab within the course.
