To access Oncourse, which web browser should I use?
Most features in Oncourse work with most popular modern browsers.
UITS recommends using the most up-to-date version of your preferred browser. Current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer are available to Indiana University students, faculty, and staff via IUware. Note that new incompatibilities may be introduced when a new browser version is released; developers will work to address serious compatibility problems as quickly as possible.
Note: To determine which browser version you're running, from theor your browser's menu, select .
Some people have reported better performance with one browser than with another. If your browser's performance is not adequate, close your browser, log into Oncourse from a different browser, and try the same task again. If you continue to have difficulties, contact your campus Support Center. During business hours, faculty can also get help from the teaching and learning centers.
As of January 12, 2016, Microsoft has ended support for Internet Explorer versions prior to version 11, unless you are running Windows Vista SP2 or certain versions of Windows Server; for a complete list of exceptions, see Microsoft Support Lifecycle. UITS strongly recommends that you upgrade to a new operating system if your current system does not support Internet Explorer 11 and is not on Microsoft's list of exceptions.
- With the exception of Safari in iOS5 and Firefox for Android, most mobile browsers for mobile phones and tablets do not support creating and editing content in the rich-text editor.
Note: Recent versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer may block some links to external websites and embedded content, such as videos. For more, see Problems seeing linked websites or videos.
- In Lessons (beta), when you click a link to a test using Firefox 24, the test may appear not to load. At the very top of the page, you'll see a message that reads "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." On the far right, click , and the test will be displayed.
- You may get unexpected results if you use two browser windows or tabs to access the same tool at the same time. For best results, use one browser window to work in Oncourse.
