Florida Virtual School technology and courses make use of a wide variety of features and technologies, such as Java, Flash, HTML5, CSS2/3, and depending on the course, other specialized components that help you achieve a more immersive learning experience.
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. In general however, lightweight devices such as Google Chromebooks or tablets that have very limited technology support for Java or Flash, will not be compatible with the majority of our courses. Please ensure you 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.
