Working at Home The Course Software does not work well with SAFARI. Use Firefox if you have an Apple computer. If you get a “Timeout Error” when using the sortware on your computer, delete your browser’s cookies and internet history and/or try a different computer/browser. If an assignment does not open correctly at home, the student will NOT be able to make up this work after the expiration date. No extension will be given to students because of issues with a home computer. To be safe, work well ahead of the deadlines at home, so that if there is any problem you will be able to go to the MTLC and complete the assignment before the deadline.
