A computer purchased in the last 5 years will more than likely be just fine.  Specifically, you will need a CPU 2.0 GHZ or greater and RAM 2 GB or greater.

Operating System:
PC: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10
Mac: OS 10.8 or greater

Internet Browser:
Internet Explorer 11 or greater
Firefox: 48.0 or greater
Chrome: 49.0 or greater
Safari: 9.0 or greater (Mac version only)
Edge: 20.0 or greater

Both PC and Mac users should install Firefox and/or Chrome in addition to their default browser. This ensures that all users have two Blackboard compatible browsers to provide an alternative option, should a technical issue arise.

Later versions of Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac) are Blackboard supported, but it is our recommendation to use Firefox or Chrome for a better user experience.

Broadband Internet is recommended.

Submitting Work:
All documents, presentations, spreadsheets, etc., that are uploaded to Blackboard need to be saved in MS Office format (.doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx extensions).
