Bb Tip #144: Web Browsers

world wide web icon

Blackboard has a list of web browsers that are certified or compatible with the version of Blackboard we use here at XU. To avoid problems with Blackboard you should use one of the supported web browsers.

You can run the browser checker to see whether Blackboard supports your web browser and operating system.

Note: If using a supported web browser does not resolve your problem, you may require additional software to be installed. Information about the additional software can be found at the supported web browsers link.
