Our online learning environment requires certain digital literacy competencies and functionalities. But we are here to help! Here you’ll find important information regarding mobile compatibility, internet filtering, and relevant competencies as well as who to contact for questions about enrollment, grades, and technical issues.
Mobile Compatibility Statement
Officially, LUOA does not recommend the use of our curriculum on mobile devices, including tablets. While the user may perform several of the day-to-day tasks on mobile devices, some features may not function on a mobile platform. Mobile devices may successfully be used in other ways that will provide convenient advantages to the student. For example, a phone or tablet camera may be a great way to record media or take a photo to be uploaded for an assignment. In this case, it is the student’s responsibility to successfully transfer the media from the mobile device to the Canvas assignment.
Internet Filtering Statement
Your student’s internet safety and accountability are of utmost importance to LUOA. All LUOA content has been curated by subject matter experts to fit the educational needs of your student in a manner that is professional, academic, and distinctly Christian. For external course materials, there are several internet filtering software solutions that are available, such as NetNanny, Covenant Eyes, and X3 Watch.
Nevertheless, these filtering softwares have been known to block some educational content. Many of these programs contain “whitelisting” and “blacklisting” features, which force a website to be allowed or blocked, respectively. Some filtering issues can be circumvented by “whitelisting” various sites linked to from the curriculum, including https://luoa.instructure.com (not including “www.”). It is also very important that internet filtering systems do not completely block YouTube, as YouTube videos are used throughout the curriculum.
