Links may open in a new window; you may need to close that window to return to this page.
- Laulima daily downtimes. Laulima will be unavailable on a daily basis from 3:00am-4:00am HST for server backup and maintenance.
- Laulima auto log-off. For your protection, Laulima automatically logs you out if it does not detect activity for two hours. A warning message will appear notifying you of the lack of activity. Activity is defined as clicking a button in Laulima such as "Save Draft" or "Next" (in a test), clicking on a course tab, or taking an action that sends information to the server.
- Hardware - Full access is available via most desktop or notebook computers. Limited access is possible through smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices (these devices are not recommended for testing or graded submissions).
- Internet connection - A broadband connection is recommmended; a wired connection is recommended during a test or when submitting work. Please note that mobile/cellular connections may prove to be unreliable with Laulima and are generally not recommended.
- Recent web browser - Most modern web browsers should work but Firefox (currently recommending Firefox ESR Win/Mac/Linux) has been found to be the most compatible, especially recommended for test taking. Note that we do not recommend using Internet Explorer (or Edge) for submitting work or taking tests in Laulima. With the changes being implemented in Google Chrome, it is no longer being recommended for Laulima.
