The Learning System also automatically checks to determine if Java is enabled in your browser and if your Java Runtime Environment (JRE™) version is supported. You must enable Java and have a supported JRE version to use certain features and tools in the Learning System. These include Chat, Who's Online, HTML Creator, WebEQ Equation Editor, My Computer, and SCORM modules. If Java is disabled or if your JRE version is unsupported, a warning message is displayed when you access the Learning System.
You can also check your browser as necessary by using the manual Browser Checker. For more information, see Checking Your Browser.
