Verify Compatibility (5-15 minutes)

Older Mac operating systems are not compatible with iLinc. They begin loading iLinc and never finish, or they may crash your browser. In order to run iLinc on a Mac, you have to use OS Leopard or above (OS 10.5.X). To determine whether you can use your current system or need to make alternative arrangements, follow the instructions below. This will take no more than 5 minutes if all is well.

1.      Check your operating system.

The earliest Mac OS supported is 10.5. To find out what version your Mac is running, go to the Apple menu at the top left of your screen and select About this Mac. If your OS is at least 10.5, proceed to do a system check to verify that JavaScript and cookies are enabled. 

2.      Perform a system check.

It’s easy. All you have to do is visit the URL below, which will automatically check and provide you with a brief report:  https://ala.ilinc.com/perl/ilinc/lms/systest.pl. If you need to update JavaScript you can try the software update route:  

  1. Go to the Apple menu at the top left of the screen.
  2. Choose software updates. 
  3. Install all updates. 
  4. Restart your computer. 
  5. Rerun the system check. If you need assistance to enable or update JavaScript, or to add an exception that will allow cookies from the site, see the Session Joining Problems section, below, or call iLinc support at 1-800-799-4510. When you are good to go on the system check, do a join test.

3.      Do a join test.

If your system is good to go, you can proceed to the Join Test from the system check page. A test session is launched just for you. Close the browser window to leave the test.
