  1. Other browsers and versions may or may not work with the BAI Learning Manager. We make every effort to ensure the site is as accessible as possible for everyone by testing new browser and Adobe Flash Player versions as they become available. However, we can only provide best-effort support for the Learning Manager using any browser or software version not listed above.
  2. Microsoft has ended support for older versions of Internet Explorer on Windows 7 and later as of January 12, 2016. Older versions of IE on Windows 7 and later are no longer receiving security updates from Microsoft. For your own security, upgrading to IE version 11 or using an alternate browser is strongly recommended by BAI. If your organization has a legacy web application which requires an older version of IE, Microsoft offers Enterprise Mode for using those sites with IE version 11.
  3. Minimum downstream bandwidth 128 kbps for video playback. Average bandwidth usage is approximately 10 kbps per concurrent user.
  4. Sites listed in the connectivity section should be white-listed by DNS name rather than IP address in all security appliances or security software. IP addresses will change as we add functionality, server capacity, or switch to backup providers in the event of a datacenter outage. White-listing the entire domain (* might be the most convenient approach from an ongoing management perspective.
  5. Adobe Flash Player may be required for certain interactions you can create using BAI I-Design as well as certain courses that are part of BAI's Professional Skills catalog.  When required BAI recommends the most recent version of Flash.
