Browser Guidance for Students Using Blackboard and Turnitin

We recommend the use of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers when accessing Blackboard and especially when submitting assignments.

You can check your Blackboard browser compatability here.

Do not use the Safari Browser.
Safari has a serious known issue for students in which they are unable to submit assignments. Attempting to submit an assignment in Safari throws an error, "Failed to submit assignment. Please try again."

Do not use Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft Edge can cause a blank document to be submitted for an assignment.

Do not use Internet Explorer.
Internet Explorer is being phased out by Microsoft and therefore we can not recommend its use.
