Setting up my device for Blackboard Learn 9.1
In order for Blackboard to run smoothly, each desktop computer/laptop needs to have the following installed:
**versions will vary depending on the operating system used.
Browsers that are compatible with Blackboard Learn 9.1
Run the browser checker to see whether Blackboard Learn supports your browser and operating system.
The computer hardware requirements for the Blackboard application are not high, and most computers purchased within the past several years should function without any issues.
Supported Operating System:
Note: Windows 2000, ME, 95 and Windows 98 are not supported since there are no certified or compatible browsers for these operating systems. Linux and other similar operating systems may function, but are not officially supported by the University.
Web Browser Requirements:
**Pop Up blockers must be disabled when using Blackboard
Blackboard will function with a 56k dial-up Internet connection or faster. For the best user experience, it is highly recommended that students have a broadband Internet service with a connection speed of 1.5 Mbps or higher. All DSL, Cable Internet, and Satellite connection packages fulfil this recommendation.
The Blackboard system makes heavy use of Java technology from Sun Microsystems, and requires the Java 2 JRE. The latest version of the free Java 2 Runtime Environment can be obtained at this link: http://www.java.com/
Suggested Plugins & Applications
In addition to the technical requirements above, online students may be required to utilize several other software programs, or have access to other plugins and applications for their online classes. Several have been listed here for your convenience:
Most online courses will require students to draft and submit homework using a third-party word processing application. Many instructors also make texts available to students in formats only readable by those word processors.
Many instructors will penalize students who turn in assignments infected with computer viruses. The installation of a virus scanner is highly recommended. There are several dozen commercial products in this category, but two free utilities have been included here for students without virus scanners installed.
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. Virus scanner which can be downloaded and installed at no charge for home users.
Trend Micro HouseCall. Free browser based virus scanner. No installation required, however this scanner cannot monitor your computer for new infections.
Please Note: Individual courses may require additional plugins as specified by the instructor.
