Open SUNY always suggests using the latest version of a supported browser when working in online courses. The version of a campus's Learning Management System (LMS) can be determined by checking the first sentence in the Open SUNY Browser Compatibility area of the system's login page, where it will state "Your <LMS> Compatibility". Other information about the browser's compatibility can also be found in this area.
The technical information provided in the tabbed sections found below will explain in detail which browsers are currently supported, sorted by LMS version and operating system. All other browsers are not recommended and can potentially impact the user's experience. Use of unsupported browsers can result in inconsistent or unpredictable behavior when working in online courses, including (but not limited to) missing course content, loss of submitted assignments, and various other page errors. Beta releases of new browser versions should also not be used until approved by system developers. In this situation, an official announcement will be posted with additional information.
Additionally, it should be noted that due to current browser requirements and reduced functionality within the Learning Management System, the use of mobile devices such as smartphones, e-readers, and tablets is not recommended as the only source to access online courses.
