Windows 10 and MS Edge Browser Compatibility Issues
(Monday, January 30, 2017)
The La Roche Student Help Desk recommends using Chrome when using Blackboard.
Many students are upgrading to the new Windows 10 operating system. Please note Windows 10 is configured to support Microsoft's newest Browser, called Edge. Edge has a number of great features and should be a good Browser, but because it is new, there are many applications that do not currently work well with it. At this time, it is strongly recommended that Edge not be used to access The La Roche Blackboard website.
We have had two issues of students unable to upload assignments using Edge.
Note: the default Browser in Windows 10 is Edge (inside the green oval) and it looks very similar to the familiar Internet Explorer icon (inside the red rectangle).
Edge is not a supported Browser for Blackboard at this time and it is recommended that students and faculty use another browser. If a feature of Bb does not seem to be working you may want to try using a different browser for that feature and notify the La Roche Student Help Desk of what problem you were having.
