Our Portals are device agnostic. Students and teachers can access their Lab-Aids Portal account via a modern internet browser running Windows, Mac OSX, Chrome, iOS, or Android. A Windows and iOS app are available to access the online curriculum, but they are not required. Below are the 3 ways that students and teachers can access their online curriculum, along with the minimum and recommended hardware and software requirements.
