For many technical issues, you can use the Browser Test on your Blackboard My Home Page to analyze your computer’s settings and make sure they are optimized for the online learning environment. The Technology Manual (PDF) also contains a lot of information and tutorials on common computer functions.
One of the first things you need to do is make sure the computer you will be using to access your online course and to complete your coursework meets the minimum technical requirements.
