CourseArc is designed to perform well even with low bandwidth connections. However, there are some strategies to further improve performance for learners if necessary.

  • Reduce the number of pages per module by consolidating multiple pages of related content on to a single page.
    –Use appropriate headings to separate and organize content.
    –Use the Tabs and Accordions blocks to consolidate related content within a single block. These blocks allow content to be displayed in smaller pieces based on user interaction.
  • Use a mainstream video streaming service, such as Vimeo or YouTube, for all embedded video content. All of the top-tier streaming services have a low-bandwidth setting that learners can use. 
  • Recommend that learners use Google Chrome as their browser.
  • Advise learners to have browser caching turned on.
  • Use CourseArc's Image block and File Manager to upload all images. CourseArc ensures all images are scaled appropriately and compressed for optimal load time.
