Can I use my iPad / tablet for my eCornell training?
eCornell strives to be tablet friendly, and we are continually working to ensure accessibility across platforms.

Certain elements within our courses may not be supported on tablets or mobile devices. For example, submitting assignments and the opening of some course documents, are better suited for computer use.  Also, you may be unable to download .zip files from the 'Course Resources' page, as the iPad does not allow this file type.

Keeping this in mind, your tablet should allow participation in most of the course. Flash is required when you use your webcam for recording / uploading your own videos, as well as uploading files, or assignments to a course. Other than these features, Flash is not required to use most areas of Canvas. Please note that some browsers may no longer support Flash. Either a computer / laptop / Flash-enabled device is necessary to submit the requirements of your course, or, another option is to install an app*. 

* At your own risk, you can search on the "App Store" for Flash Player programs which allow viewing of Flash content within webpages.
Before proceeding/purchasing, be aware that eCornell cannot, and does not, guarantee our site will work with a third-party application. 
One suggestion is to search the App Store for 'browser with flash player'. Many students have reported success with the Google Chrome browser or Puffin browser app, because the flash plug-in is included. 

If you cannot find a way to make our content work on a tablet, you are responsible to find/use a computer that meets our technical requirements.
