Here is the link to the Blackboard site
"Brookes Virtual", that we are using to host synchronous and asynchronous discussions.
Attached to this page you will find a guides to Brookes Virtual and general advice about web browsers for use in Brookes online courses.
- Tutor's Note: If you are in doubt about your preferred browser, try it out. You will not break the system if your browser is "not supported by the VLE". I use Firefox 6.0.2 on Mac OSX 10.6.8. Every time I log in the VLE throws up a screen telling me that I have an unsupported browser. It works fine. I have also used the VLE on Microsoft systems running Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8, which is "supported", but the rich text editor doesn't work. Silly VLE. (GR)
- A note on the virtual classroom. The supported browser list is different for the virtual classroom. A link to a guide to supported browsers also attached below.
