For the best experience with MAP Accelerator, consider the tips and general guidelines below.
Device and Operating System Requirements
MAP Accelerator works on (and is optimized for) all desktop and laptop devices and operating systems with an internet-ready browser.
MAP Accelerator currently is not supported on mobile web browsers nor is it currently available on the native Khan Academy mobile apps.
MAP Accelerator requires a keyboard, mouse, or touchscreen enabled device.
For the best experience, we recommend that each user has access to speakers or headphones.
MAP Accelerator supports the latest versions of the following browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge
If you use an unsupported browser, you will likely encounter more bugs.
Internet and Network Requirements
Devices using MAP Accelerator must be connected to the internet (either wired or Wi-Fi). MAP Accelerator cannot be used off-line.
For the best MAP Accelerator experience in your school, we recommend the following:
- For video watching, adequate bandwidth is necessary to ensure a smooth connection. Most Khan Academy videos require less bandwidth than live-action content, but we suggest~1.5 Mbps bandwidth per student or device playing standard-definition video.
- If students are focused mainly on exercises, the suggested bandwidth is 150 kbps per user.
- When considering network setup for portable devices, ensure every device has a strong wireless connection. When many devices are used simultaneously, the wireless network often becomes weaker.
- Because Khan Academy videos are hosted by YouTube, it is necessary to unblock YouTube for Khan Academy to work properly.
