Before purchasing this software, be sure to check to ensure your MAC can use all of the applications.

iPad & iPhone

Some of the online courses use Flash-based media to deliver lecture content. Flash is inaccessible from an iPad or iPhone. If you plan to use your iPad or iPhone to access your online courses, you will need to ensure you have a backup computer to view Flash-based media should your course contain it.
