Web browsers, Blackboard, and other web based applications frequently require updates to expand functionality, fix bugs, or address security issues. These changes don't necessarily sync up all the time across applications so functionality can break. To minimize these issues we recommend faculty and students maintain up-to-date versions of whatever browser they prefer. Browsers may update automatically, but you can check for available updates. Update your browser if one is available.
