    Smartphones and tablets are NOT supported

    Minimum Operating System Requirements: Processor 

    Intel Corei3 Processor or greater 

    Memory 

    4GB of RAM or greater

    Graphics card that supports WebGL 

    Operating System

    Internet Browser 

    Mozilla Firefox (primary), Google Chrome 

  2. Close other open tabs in your browser. Never have a lesson open in two windows at the same time to avoid grade sync errors.
  3. Close applications, especially ones that stream video or other data (e.g. Steam, Skype, Spotify, and VLC/Netflix/YouTube).
  4. Clear your browser cache and cookies. Often browsers store info (cache) that speeds up future load times but can slow down your current performance.
  5. If you have AdBlocker installed in your browser, disable or whitelist aelp.smartsparrow.com to have it not block your course unintentionally.
  6. Disable any other browser extensions as they can interfere with page loading.
  7. Ensure WebGL is enabled on your browser. Instructions can be found on our System Requirements page.
