Minimum System Requirements
Blackboard-Compatible Web Browsers
It is important that you use a modern, supported Web browser to access online courses in Blackboard.
- You can verify your own Web browser configuration is supported by running the Bb Browser Checker and checking the list of Blackboard's supported Web browsers and operating systems.
- If you have issues with Blackboard features and are using a supported browser, try using an alternative Web browser from the the list of Blackboard's supported Web browsers and operating systems.
Detailed Web browser information is available at http://it.unh.edu/bbbrowser.
