Blackboard Browser Tester for Release 9
This tool defines a custom portal module which performs a series of diagnostic tests which can help the user and/or a member of the service desk/sys admin resolve common configuration problems. This includes sample files to download and audio and video samples to play.
This project provides an updated version of the Browser Test building block for Blackboard Learn (Release 9 and 9.1).

|Update for sp11 and newer
The Browser Test Building block has been updated to integrate better in the most recent version of Blackboard (9.1 sp11 and above). Please check it out...
|9.1 Version Updated
I have posted a new version of the Browser Test tool that works better in the new releases of Blackboard 9.1 (specifically SP6).
|Support for Blackboard 9.1
Annoyingly, minor changes had to be made to the Browser Tester for release 9.1. There is an alpha build now available, which still needs a little smoothing :-)
People running 9.0 should deploy the earlier release 9.3.x
|New version of the Browser Test Tool available
I have just released a new build of the release 9 version of the Browser Test Tool. This works better in IE 7 and IE8. This is a recommended update for all users of the tool.
|Beta Browser Check Tool Released
I've just uploaded the first build of the new Browser Test Tool designed for use with Blackboard Learn (release 9).
I'm not guaranteeing it is stable enough for production yet, but would appreciate feedback from people curious enough to install it on a test server.
