* Mobile versions of these browsers aren't supported for Blackboard Learn 9.1 at this time, although users may have success using them. Blackboard Learn with the Ultra experience is compatible with these browsers on mobile and tablet devices.

** Google Chrome versions 42+ and Microsoft Edge do not support NPAPI-type plug-ins, including Java plug-ins and many media browser plug-ins. Blackboard doesn't support these browsers for use in the following circumstances: 1) with embedded media types that require third-party NPAPI plug-ins for viewing and 2) the multiple-file upload interface located in the Content Collection, although the other multiple-file upload interfaces are supported on these browsers.

*** Internet Explorer is not supported for the Ultra experience or Ultra Course View.
