The Lab-Aids Portal is device agnostic. Students and teachers can access their Lab-Aids Portal account via a modern internet browser running Windows, Mac OSX, Chrome, iOS, or Android. A Windows and iOS app are available to access the online curriculum, but they are not required. Below are the 3 ways that students and teachers can access their online curriculum, along with the minimum and recommended hardware and software requirements.

1. Web Browser

You can access the Lab-Aids Portal using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. At the moment, we do not fully support the users accessing the Lab-Aids Portal from a browser on a smartphone due to the limited screen size/resolution. For smartphone users, we recommend utilizing a dedicated Lab-Aids Portal app if available.
