Technical Requirements

What are the Technical Requirements for the Active Parenting Online Parenting Classes?

The computer you use to access the online parenting materials on the Internet should have the following:

  • A computer with sound (speakers or headphones)
  • Internet access
  • One of the following web browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome.

A note about firewalls:
Some firewalls (devices used by many private organizations for extra security, such as access from a corporation or other information-sensitive organization) will cause certain aspects of the course to be inaccessible. If you access the Internet from behind a firewall, it is best to check with your network administrator about compatibility. The optional live chat requires access to Port 6667.
