Software/Services:

Web Filters:

  • Please note that Web-Filters, such as NetNanny can cause problems with our online Learning Management System (Canvas) and related links.
  • Web-Filters will need to allow students to access “luoa.instructure.com” and affiliated URLs.
  • Web-Filters that block YouTube will impede students ability to access curriculum related videos.
  • You need to look for web-filters that are easy to configure and adapt to the needs of the student(s).

Please note that these are the technical requirements for all courses, some specific courses may have additional materials required such as books or science supplies. Please be sure to review the Course Materials list for your child's courses. 

 

Also, be aware that Net Nanny, a filtering software that is recommended for parental controls for internet safety, incorrectly targets part of our curriculum and is not recommended for use. In general, hardware solutions such as filtering routers are better with LUOA content than software solutions for filtering purposes.
