Internet Explorer 11 no longer a supported browser for Blackboard

You should use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge (Windows 10) web browser to access Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment, as Internet Explorer 11 is no longer supported.

There is an increasing trend of features not working in Blackboard when using Internet Explorer 11. Instead, you should consider using a more modern web browser.

What do I need to do?

  • Use either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge (Windows 10) web browser
  • If you still use Internet Explorer 11 as the main web browser on your Windows 7 University PC, you should consider upgrading to Windows 10 as soon as possible
  • See the Blackboard Browser support page for more information about supported browsers. This also links to a browser checker to ensure your browser is supported for using Blackboard
