Outside The Classroom supports a variety of computer configurations for all versions of AlcoholEdu. While we recommend using Internet Explorer 7 and Flash Player 8 or later when taking the course, it will function as long as your computer meets certain minimum technical requirements. Please refer to the matrix below to confirm that your computer meets these minimum requirements. If you are unsure about your system configuration, you may log on to the course and use the information on the Media Settings page to help you identify any missing requirements.
