During the May 14-15, 2014 Blackboard maintenance window, updates were applied that updated some of Blackboard's features and functionality.
Most course features function the way they have in the past. The tutorials on this site still provide accurate information on how to complete many course tasks, even though the tutorials demonstrate these tasks using the old interface. Distance Learning is working to update the tutorials with the new interface. (Use the site menu to the left to view the current tutorials.)
Browser and Java
Because the Blackboard update includes the latest web technologies, it is very important to ensure you have an updated version of Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer (with Firefox or Chrome as the preferred browsers) installed on your computer. For example, a 3-year old browser such as Firefox 3.6 will not work correctly with the new system. Also, make sure the java on your computer is up-to-date (www.java.com).
