    When should I use a computer to access my course?

     

    While the app offers a native environment to access your course content, some features can be limited depending on the mobile device being used. The mobile app is not a replacement for a computer browser but it is a way to access and view your course content on the go.

     

    The following features will not function properly and should only be used in a full browser on a computer:

    • Students will not be able to:
      • take some tests, quizzes or surveys
      • submit assignments with attachments
      • participate in any synchronous communication which requires Java
    • Faculty will not be able to:
      • create or modify Course Tools 
      • make Grade Center changes 
      • create or participate in any synchronous communication which requires Java
