The following Requirements Check link will determine if a computer meets our system requirements, including requirements for the web browser, Flash player, display resolution, and audio:

1) PC REQUIREMENTS
Any computer (including Mac, PC, and Chromebook) with Chrome, Safari, FireFox or Internet Explorer web browsers that support Flash 11.7 or later can run DreamBox Learning.

2) IPAD REQUIREMENTS
DreamBox can run on iPad 2 or newer with iOS 6 and higher. This includes the iPad Mini versions.

3) BANDWIDTH REQUIREMENTS
The bandwidth requirements for DreamBox are affected by the network speed/configuration at the classroom/lab level, rather than the speed of the connection into the building. Regular usage starts a session at 1.6 KBPS per student. After a few minutes, this should fall to approximately 0.6 KBPS per student.

For latency test information, please refer to the Checking Latency with DreamBox article.
