If you’re using courseware, content and materials that require students to have Flash or Java installed it can be a tech support nightmare supporting students online who have different browsers, use different computers or just don’t know how to install or upgrade essential software which is listed in your site’s technical requirements.

The Compatibility Test maintained by Aaron Leggett and Chris Clark is a great way to bake a self-check into your Moodle site to ensure that students are alerted if and when they do not have the right version installed of Java or Flash.

This local plug-in provides the functionality to check the users Flash and/or Java version against a pre-set minimum version and notify the user that they are not meeting the sites minimum requirements.

Additionally the user can be force to only view the Plug-in status page while they do not meet the minimum requirements.

The local mod for Moodle is available for Moodle 2.6+. Download it here:
