Browser Supported Desktop* Browser Versions
Chrome** 49+
Edge** 20+
Firefox 48+
Internet Explorer Unsupported
Safari 9+ (Mac OS only)

* Mobile app versions of these browsers aren't supported at this time, although users may have success using them. The Learn 2016 system theme improves the experience of mobile users in some interfaces. Bb Student is a supported native app for mobile and tablet devices that interact with Blackboard Learn 9.1 servers.

** Google Chrome versions 42+ and Microsoft Edge do not support NPAPI-type plug-ins, including Java plug-ins and many media browser plug-ins. Blackboard doesn't support these browsers for use in the following circumstances: 1) with embedded media types that require third-party NPAPI plug-ins for viewing and 2) the multiple-file upload interface located in the Content Collection, although the other multiple-file upload interfaces are supported on these browsers.
