Browser Information

Blackboard Browser Checker

  • We recommend Firefox for Blackboard.

    Generally, some browsers work better than others for different Bb activities,
    often depending on your personal computer settings.
  • Keep your browser up to date.

Browser Tips

  • If you encounter issues, try clearing your browser's cache.
  • Keep your browser, plugins, and related software up to date. 
  • If your browser displays warnings or exceptions, click the button labeled 
    Accept or Continue to update information.
  • Use Firefox for most Bb work.
  • Keep your operating system and virus protection up to date.
  • Avoid using an Internet Service Provider custom browser (e.g., AOL, Charter, Comcast).
  • For best results, use a wired, High-Speed Internet connection (e.g., Cable, DSL)



Bb Best Practices

- Test Taking

  • Use a computer with a wired connection,
    i.e., Avoid mobile devices and wireless (WiFi) connections.
  • Use only Bb navigation buttons and links.
  • Click links or buttons once and wait as necessary.
  • Follow the Test Taking Tips.
  • If you encounter an issue, contact your instructor.

- Submitting Files

When submitting assignments, attaching documents, uploading files:

  • Use only letters, numerals, hyphens, and underscores in the file name.
