Why can't I log in?
Check carefully if you have entered the correct username and password.  It is likely that you entered either a wrong username or password to log in.  Both the username and password are case-sensitive.  You should have been given a set of account username and password from the induction session/package.  In case you have not, please contact the VLPO for help.

It depends on your browser settings.  If your log-on status has been idle for a long time (without loading pages), you are automatically logged out (the session is ended).  However, a popup window will be prompted for your username and password after time out.  You can choose to continue or not.

What software/Which browser is required to use e-VEP or Moodle?
Our e-Learning system works well in any HTML5 compatible browsers.  However, we recommend that you use Firefox 35+ or Chrome 40+.  If you are experiencing technical difficulties, please make sure you are using one of our approved browsers before reporting the problem.
The following software may also be required depending on the courses you are having:
Name Description
Adobe Flash Player To view Flash content on websites
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/
Adobe Acrobat Reader To view PDF files
http://get.adobe.com/reader/

What is the bandwidth requirement?
Our e-Learning system consists of many text content and some images.  There is not much difference from reading news or surfing on the Web.  The bandwidth depends on your experience in browsing normal webpages.

128 kbps download speed would be good to view the recorded videos.  However, we suggest to have at least 1 Mbps (upload) / 3 Mbps (download) actual speed for group video chating.
