Information for AOL Users

America Online is not compatible with Blackboard and students cannot use AOL to with their Blackboard classes. To access Blackboard, AOL users must download a standard (or stand-alone) version of either Mozilla's Firefox or Internet Explorer. Then follow these procedures to access Blackboard:

  • Connect to AOL as you normally do, but stay at the AOL welcome page.
  • Minimize but do not close the AOL window to keep AOL running in the background. (Explorer or Firefox will use your AOL Internet connection).
  • Launch Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
  • Login to Blackboard using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
