Blackboard-Compatible Web Browsers

It is important that you use a modern, supported Web browser to access online courses in Blackboard.

  1. You can verify your own Web browser configuration is supported by running the Bb Browser Checker and checking the list of Blackboard's supported Web browsers and operating systems.
