4.1. Viewing Resources

To view E-Learning presentations and take E-Learning assessments your browser needs to support HTML5. 

The table below identifies the minimum requirements for viewing the presentations and assessments. Please review this and ensure that you are able to use a solution that allows you to view the presentations effectively.

Table 1. Minimum requirements for viewing E-Learning presentations and assessments 


One of the following browsers 

  • Windows: Google Chrome 14, Safari 5.1
  • Mac: Google Chrome 14, Safari 5.1
  • iPad (Apple iOS 5.0+): Mobile Safari, Chrome for Mobile
  • Android: Chrome for Mobile

Other browsers supporting HTML5 may work but this is not confirmed by the providers of software that generates the presentation packages.

Some parts of SNOMED CT E-Learning courses make use of the SNOMED CT Browser (http://browser.ihtsdotools.org). This browser works with most modern browsers but is known not to work with earlier versions of some browsers. For example, it does not work with Internet Explorer version 9 or earlier.

If you have problems viewing content, please refer to Section 9 (Troubleshooting), and if this does not resolve the problem report this as a technical issue using the E-Learning Feedback Form as described in Section 7 (Communication).

Note: If a presentation is updated you may find that you still see an earlier version you viewed before the update. This is due to an older version of the presentation held in your web-browser cache. This may play rather than correctly downloading the updated version. To resolve this issue, please clear your web-browser cache and restart your browser. For details on how to clear the cache of most web-browsers see http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browsers-Cache.
