Technology Information

Requirements:
* Email Address For Each Student - (Email addresses will not be provided by Virtual Arkansas.)
* Headsets w/microphones
* Webcam

Attention: At this time we do not support Chromebooks. Due to the wide array of technologies, there are some limitations to browsers and devices we can support. We test a wide variety of devices and have intentions to migrate away from technologies that are not compatible across multiple platforms. In general, lightweight devices such as Chromebooks or tablets that have very limited support for Respondus Lockdown Browser, 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 device does not meet the needs of the course.

Attention: Does your class have special requirements for that class specifically? Individual courses may require a special text book, eBook, or other software that is unique to a specific class. These requirements would not be required for all Virtual Arkansas students but would be needed if your district enrolls students into that course. For course specific requirements, go to http://virtualarkansas.org/home.html , click on the Courses tab and choose the textbook list for specific information.

Attention: We will no longer be supporting the Blackboard Mobile component. Courses in Blackboard will continue to be available in the traditional Blackboard Learn environment.
