Browser Specific Settings

If you are using Aims Online at work, you need to know about company firewalls

If you have difficulty logging into your course, contact your IT office at work and discuss the issue with them.

Because the college has no control over the way your company network is configured; it's important to deal directly with the IT staff at your office to resolve problems.
