Bandwidth Considerations

Many of the potential problems listed above can be caused by low or congested bandwidth, especially when students access Learning.com or load the lessons. Bandwidth usage is highest when students login and when lessons are loading. Staggering these activities (i.e., only 5-10 students at a time) may clear up lagging issues.

It is possible that your bandwidth strength is preventing the Learning.com servers from communicating with your computer labs properly. Speak to the IT professionals at your school for further assistance in determining this.

Ensure that there is nothing blocking pop-up windows from Learning.com. Follow the instructions from the websites listed below.

Note: If you have third party software that has a pop-up blocker, this will need to be disabled as well.
