What are the technical requirements?
You can access the app through PC, laptop, tablet & smartphone.
OS.University (OSU) is a standard web-based application, leveraging industry-leading cloud technologies.
Blockchain technologies are used solely for the process of immutable validation and verification of skills, certificates, and experiences, in line with the vision of the platform creators for a self-sovereign educational identity. There is no requirement to create a crypto wallet or own (and trade) any sort of digital currencies in order to use the OSU platform and its services.
While OSU alpha-release was more of an experimental DApp (distributed application), relying on IPFS technologies in-the-making, our current release leverages a more mature, reliable cloud setup, organized around industry-standard tools and services, provided by "Digital Ocean", "Google Cloud", "Cloud Flare".
Our current release is compatible with PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. The full platform functionality is available for end users, working in Windows, Android, macOS/iOS environments.
It’s preferable to use Google Chrome browser for maximum user experience (meanwhile we are actively working for compatibility with most used browsers).
