Included in most of the test, survey, and content areas of Blackboard is the option to use an equation editor to enter math and scientific equations without having to use html coding. Finding the right combination of browsers and operating system that works with the equationeditor has been an issue but a bit of testing different combinations has produced some successful results.
- Firefox 3 – works
- IE7 – works but other features in blackboard don’t work so we suggest you use Firefox.
- IE6 – works
- Firefox3 – works
Mac 10.5 and 10.4
- Safari 3 – works!
- Firefox 3 – doesn’t work
News is that UAf is moving to Blackboard 8 in January – hopefully some of the issues with the equation editor will be resolved – we’ll keep you posted!
