  • Use Firefox for Blackboard
    It is strongly recommended that students, faculty, and staff use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser when working with Blackboard in any capacity.

    There is a known issue with Safari affecting students and faculty. Users get an error message when submitting assignments or uploading course material to Blackboard.  This only occurs with Safari 11.1 on Mac. To avoid this error, please use the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser.
