Will NROC content work on my iPad or Android tablet?


Basic Information

Apple devices run on iOS and do not support Flash. Likewise, Flash has not been supported for the Android operating system since the release of Jelly Bean (v.4.1).  Adobe has also discontinued support for Flash.

The majority of NROC content has been built in HTML5, which is supported by all modern browsers, both mobile and desktop. HippoCampus includes a mix of Flash and non-Flash based media. In some cases, we have converted Flash media elements to non-flash versions and offer both versions to our users. displays a mix of Flash and non-Flash media.

The links to full NROC courses are not available at the mobile version of HippoCampus.

NOTE: Android devices will display the links, but will not properly play the Flash content in the courses; possible exceptions are older versions of Android or newer versions in which Flash has been installed. We do not directly support those modified devices.

NROC members and non-members can link directly to available content by using the "link" icon at the bottom of any HippoCampus video object.

NROC Math Courses

The Topics in NROC Math Courses and NROC English are built with HTML5 (not Flash) and therefore are compatible with all browsers and mobile devices. 


The EdReady dashboard and assessments (the "pages" of the EdReady site) will function on iOS and Android devices, with some user interface differences as compared to desktop use (i.e., the way the students interact with buttons, dragging, etc., will be device-dependent).  

EdReady uses the NROC Math and NROC English content that was built in HTML5 for the "Learn" resources. These are compatible with mobile devices.

NOTE: Mobile device users may wish to consider a Flash-capable mobile browser to view the Flash content on Commonly used Flash browsers include (but are not limited to) Photon, iSwifter, Dolphin, and Puffin. These browsers may not work on all devices and are not tested or supported by NROC, nor do we make any assertions about their fitness for any particular use.
