PLEASE NOTE: The browser checker link has been updated! It has been changed in the Bb tab resources as well, however if you have the old link in your syllabus it will show up as broken. Find that new link here: https://dlwebapp.tri-c.edu/BrowserChecker/. Shout out to Professor Catanese for the suggestion!
This link was provided in the 8/22/14 blog update for start of term. It is also current on the Blackboard tab for students and faculty.
With thanks – Sasha
If you have been experiencing problems with PDFs displaying in Chrome (Google’s browser), Flash content and Shockwave, a solution has been pushed to administrative computers by ITS. It should now be resolved. If you are having problems with this still, you can contact the college’s helpdesk. However, we are available to help with browser issues that impact Blackboard or other eLearning technologies. You can email us at eLifacultysupport@tri-c.edu, or at (216) 987-4257.
A big shout out to George Kanieski for working on the resolution! – Sasha

There is currently an issue with the Blackboard Gradebook and Assessments. A building block has failed. We are currently conducting a rolling restart of Blackboard to attempt to resolve this. You should still be able to work within Blackboard otherwise for other functions.
We will update you as soon as we know more. If you have something else to report, please contact us at: eLifacultysupport@tri-c.edu.
