Blackboard lists Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox latest version (26) as certified (fully tested and supported) for windows 7. We recommend having multiple browsers installed on your computer so that it is easy to switch to a different browser when there is a browser related issue. Please check system requirements that are necessary in order for you to access AWC blackboard version 9.1. The page includes browsers compatibility list for Windows and Mac. System Requirement Firefox Release Channel is the fully tested version by Mozilla and intended to be the most stable. If your course includes embedded content such as YouTube videos and blackboard is displaying the content as blank space , please click here to check how to fix browsers settings in order to display embedded content.

Please note that when you sign up for a class, there is a delay before that class shows up in Blackboard. That delay is typically fifteen minutes or less, but can be longer depending on other system processes.
