Computer requirements

The Learning Engine courses require access to a computer or other device with broadband internet.

This means you can:

  • Send and receive emails and download documents
  • Access and contribute to discussion forums and page comments
  • Watch, listen and for some courses record videos and sound files
  • Carry out online research
  • Provide your work to us in one of the following formats: .docx, .pptx, .rtf, .pdf, .zip. For some courses you will also need to provide spreadsheets (.xlsx) or a collated OneNote file (.one).

If you are spending considerable time on the computer, please be aware of the importance of a safe and healthy working environment. The ACC has useful guidelines:


Learning Engine will be accessible on most modern devices including tablets and smartphones (Android and iOS), but some specialty resources or software may be required for specific courses and iPhones and iPads have some limitations (see below). So for optimum experience we recommend you have access to a desktop/laptop computer.

Desktop/laptop computers: Learning Engine requires computers with a minimum of Windows 7 or MacOSx 10.9 but we recommend Windows 10 or above and MacOS 10.10 or above. We recommend a CPU processor of 1GHz or more and a screen with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels

iPad/iPhone: Please note that the file system on many iPads and iPhones do not support file uploads. So you will need to use a Mac Desktop or PC if you wish to upload files, such as assessments. There are some third-party apps that can be used for iPads and iPhones, however these are not guaranteed byLearning Engine.


Learning Engine is designed to run on most modern browsers, but we recommend you upgrade to the latest version available for your operating system. Check for latest versions here.

Not sure which browser you are using? Go to Support Details to get a summary of your current browser and other aspects of your computer system.

Learning Engine uses pop-up windows for several functions including assessment uploads. You will need to 'enable all pop-ups' within your web browser settings, or add as an exception in your list of pop-up enabled websites. Check out WikiHow - browser pop-up blockers for more details on changing your browser settings.
