Before logging in, it is highly recommended that you perform a browser check to see if your computer is properly configured to use the Blackboard Learning System.
→ Check Browser
The Blackboard Learning System sometimes uses small browser windows to deliver requested content. Some pop-up blockers incorrectly interpret these small windows as pop-ups and block them. If you have installed a pop-up blocker, turn it off while using the Learning System.
After logging in to the Blackboard Learning System, you may be prompted to accept a Java Security Certificate. You must click Yes or Always to ensure that Learning System functionality using Java will work properly in your browser.
Important! - Java 7 is NOT compatible with Blackboard. Do not download this update because it will cause issues with your online course.
The current version of Blackboard requires you have Java 6™ Update 20 or later. For instructions on how to get the correct version, view the instructions on our Browser Settings page.
