There is an identified Blackboard browser interaction issue on Internet Explorer. We are working with ITS as we speak to apply a fix and do a rolling restart of Blackboard. If you are experiencing issues with discussion forums, grade center, and a few other things, these will be resolved with this fix.
Our recommended browser for the highest usability is normally IE 9 or 10, however for the next few hours either use Firefox or turn off “Compatibility View”. Please refer to the following posts for information on recommended browsers and on cut/paste issues from Fall 2013.
With thanks – Sasha
