Our Online School (OLS) platform is powered by Edsby. Each student needs their own device.
Edsby and browser compatibility
Edsby is tested extensively on recent versions of:
Microsoft Internet Explorer
We know that it is not always possible to run the very latest version of a browser, so we try to make sure Edsby will work with older, less capable browsers. But we do not guarantee Edsby will work on anything older than two major versions backwards.
Like many modern web applications Edsby stores a local “cookie” on your computer to help speed things up. You need to make sure you have cookies enabled in your browser for Edsby to work properly. Consult the help documentation for your browser if you need to find out how to check this browser setting.
If you come across a problem using Edsby that is specific to any browser or system, please contact our support department at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details and we will do our best to fix it.
