Changes to Chrome will have minor effects on Blackboard

As reported by IT Services recently, changes to the Chrome web browser that are due to start in April will stop Java plugins from working. Almost all the functionality of Blackboard will be unaffected by these changes. However, the drag-and-drop multiple file upload system for Course Files and the Content Collection uses the Java plugin, and may stop working when these changes come into effect. You will still be able to upload files one at a time in Chrome, and the multiple file upload system will still work in Internet Explorer, so please use whichever of these approaches best suits you. In addition, the Campus Pack Podcast tools use Java, and so you might need to use Internet Explorer to access these.
