Browser Troubleshooting

1. Check supported browser versions.

Check to see if your problem is related to known issues with your browser version, above.

2. Clear your browser’s cache.

Clearing your browser’s cache may help to resolve problems such as trouble using drag-and-drop features, or trouble viewing the gradebook. See Clear Your Bowser’s Cache

3. Try a different browser and/or move to a different computer.

You may find it helpful to have more than one browser installed on your computer. If you run into problems, moving to another browser may resolve your issues. You can also try moving to a different computer to see if the problem persists. This may help to discern whether your issue was a problem with your browser or computer, or with the LMS.

4. Still having problems?

If the issue persists in several browsers, and on different computers, please report your problem to the IT Help Center for assistance. (See orange question mark in the lower left of any page)
