Technical Requirements and Support

Mobile devices do not have full Blackboard functionality. Avoid taking tests using a wireless (WiFi) connection or a mobile device.

For the most trouble-free experience while using Blackboard, students should use a device with an Operating System and Internet Browser that is supported by Blackboard.

For best results, use a wired, high-speed Internet connection, and a recommended browser.

To learn more about web browser support and compatibility with Blackboard visit Blackboard Learn Browser Support.


Blackboard Mobile

Blackboard mobile apps do not provide full functionality or security. We strongly recommended that you avoid taking tests or quizzes using a wireless (WiFi) connection or a mobile device. When possible, complete coursework on a laptop or desktop computer with a stable internet connection.
