Mobile devices

Some courses are set up to be very mobile friendly and others are not. In general, all documentaries and movie clips included in a course will likely require Adobe Flash Player. Otherwise, almost all of the features and tools in TITANium allow you to interact with the content and with other participants on a mobile device.

However, given that most discussion forums require well-thoughout and well-typed responses, it is not recommended that you use a mobile device to post your responses to a discussion forum. Nevertheless, for reading/viewing of posts, a mobile device can be quite handy.
