Chrome OS running on a Chromebook using the Chrome browser is also supported.​

Mobile versions of the browsers listed​ are not recommended, though in some circumstances they may function without errors.  The Blackboard App is the supported native app for students using mobile and tablet devices.

Java and Other Browser Plugins

Google Chrome versions 87+ and Microsoft Edge do not support NPAPI-type plug-ins, including Java plug-ins and many media browser plug-ins.​  A handful of features in Blackboard Learn require particular additional software to be installed. Without these, the features themselves do not function.​  ​
