Internet Plugins Test
To benefit from many of the resources available to teachers and students online, your Internet browser should have the plugins listed below. Some web pages or resources may work only with a particular browser: check to make sure you have the right one. If you are using the Firefox browser, there is a handy plugin test page at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/
If have another browser and/or want to test your plugins on your own, just click on the link on the first line of each section below and see if it works. If it does, fine: go on to the next section. If it doesn't, download and install the plugin.
