This definition and appendices will be revisited every six months, in May and November, to ensure it is still considered in-line with current browser technology.
We have a need to define the browsers which will be supported so that we can ensure that the OU will continue to deliver high quality and consistent web-based content. More importantly we also need to identify at what point browsers will cease to be supported so that we can eliminate the need to test against browser technology which is no longer used by a significant number of our users.
Note: there may be limitations relating to some technologies used for online learning, meaning that the technology may not meet this standard completely. Open University students should check their module computing requirements for more specific information.
It is proposed that we have 4 categories of support, much in the same way that systems are managed within the architectural governance structure.
Digital Services coordinate the management of the framework, for further information please email Digital Services
