For Blackboard, please use the following browsers:
Google Chrome Click here to access the download page for Chrome
Mozilla Firefox Click here to access the download page for Firefox
Do not use Internet Explorer (the "blue 'e' icon" on your computer) for Blackboard. Download and install Chrome or Firefox.
But remember: All web browsers have their issues, especially when saddled with additional plug-ins and extras such as toolbars. Make sure that all of your software (including Java) is kept current with updates. Machines with software conflicts, malware, or other issues will be problematic regardless of what browser is used.
