All STEMscopes video and interactive components are encoded in HTML5. A web-capable device (tablets, phones, computers) require no additional software, apps, or updates to be able to fully use STEMscopes. Internet connection is required to use the program; only PDF, Excel, and PowerPoint resources are downloadable for online use. Texas teachers using the new Google Doc editable feature on iPads will need the Google Drive and Google Doc apps to work with/edit those items on the iPad. Teachers also have the option to assign our editable Google documents to students via the Google Classroom app.

Network Requirements

Access to any hosts under the *.acceleratelearning.com and *.stemscopes.com. All content will be served from subdomains of the domain name. If required, IP addresses can be provided for firewall configuration.

Ability to accept mail from @stemscopes.com and @acceleratelearning.com email addresses. Some features of the site require email verification and notification to users and it is important that these incoming addresses not be blocked or marked as spam.

Accessing our content depends on real-time streaming, if the content is a video, song, or other interactive element, while all of our print materials in PDF format can be downloaded to a computer as quickly as the school’s network allows. Each school’s ability to stream content is limited by that school’s internet bandwidth. ALI has implemented an international CDN network to provide our clients with the fastest access possible, regardless of their location.
