  • What do I need in order to access the e-learning resources?
    • You can access the e-learning resources from almost any computer or device that has an internet connection and a browser. However, for the best usability we have tested the following browsers and are confident they will allow users to access all components of the platform sucessfully.

  • e-LfH Browser policy
  • Can I use Internet Explorer 7 to access the e-LfH Hub?
    • Unfortunately, the e-LfH Hub does not work in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) web browser. e-LfH’s Browser Policy lists Internet Explorer 8 as the earliest Microsoft browser that is supported. This decision took effect from January 1st 2015 and brought e-LfH into line with the National Learning Management System (NLMS) and Skills for Health.

      IE7 was released in 2006 and has been superseded by Internet Explorer 8, 9 10 and finally Internet Explorer 11, which is the latest release. In the intervening years since IE7 was released, the Internet and the technologies associated with it have evolved. The release of HTML5 and the rise of the iPad, for example, have changed the technological landscape and, as our users adopt these new technologies, so e-LfH has to respond to this demand.

      Unfortunately, the effort to make our web sites compatible with these new technologies and also remain compatible with IE7 is not sustainable. Furthermore, IE7 usage on the e-LfH Portal fell from 11.72% of users in March 2014 to 7.52% in September 2014. As a result, we made the decision jointly with Skills for Health that we would drop support for IE7.

      If you are using IE7 on a PC in a Trust, we suggest you approach your IT department and ask them to upgrade the browser. If the PC is running Windows XP, then they can upgrade it to IE8, which we do support. Alternatively, you could ask to install a different browser altogether, such as Chrome or Firefox.
