- Why is the browser locking up when I try to view
my course section roster?
If you are teaching a large course section (85+ students) and you are using Internet
Explorer browser your roster display can be significantly delayed and may
even lock-up your computer. We have found that Internet Explorer has difficulty
rendering the large tables that are used with larger course sections and recommend
Firefox or Netscape
browsers as an alternative to Internet Explorer. You can download and install
these browsers yourself or contact the Computing and Technology Help Desk
to obtain an installation disk and provide you with installation assistance.
Additionally, if you are accessing WebGrade via a 56k dial-up connection and
have a large course section, the download and display of the page may take
as long as 30 seconds.
