Advice for online MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL students
Between the 10 July 2012 and 20 July 2012 you may continue to use Blackboard as usual, including forums, e-tivities etc, as your course instructor will be taking steps to retain content once the upgrade is completed. If you have any concerns, please contact the course administrator, Luke Gamble.
After the upgrade
When the upgrade is complete, you will no longer be able to access Blackboard using older web browsers such as Internet Explorer 7. You can find advice on how to upgrade to a web browser that will work with the new version of Blackboard on the Browser Advice Page.
