Check your Browser and Settings for Compatibility with Blackboard
As a web‐based application, Blackboard requires the use of a web browser. When preparing to use it, you should check to make sure that your machine’s operating system and the browser you plan to use are compatible with the system. Refer to the “Discover Operating System and Browser Versions” article if needed. OIT provides information about operating system and browser compatibility on the Blackboard Support website (http://www.ohio.edu/oit/bbsupport). There is also a Browser Checker page provided by the Blackboard vendor that scans your browser’s settings and plug‐ins, providing confirmation for compatible items and suggestions regarding incompatibility with the Blackboard application.
To Use the Browser Checker:
- Login to Blackboard.
- Click the My Support tab across the top of the screen.
- Next select the Browser Checker sub-tab.
- Click the "Click here for Blackboard's official browser checker" link.
