Browser Check

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

Pop-up Blockers

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.

Java Security Certificate

After logging in to the Blackboard Learning System, you will 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.
