Incompatibility with recent Java upgrade and Blackboard

The most recent version of Java (Java 7 Update 51) is currently incompatible with Blackboard.

Do not upgrade your Java client at this time as it may adversely affect the following Blackboard tools:

  • Multiple File Upload
  • Chat/Virtual Classroom

Blackboard is developing a patch and plans to release it on Jan. 23rd.  Application of the patch will be performed as soon as possible after it is released.

If you have already upgraded your Java client, it is recommended to uninstall the client and install an earlier release of Java 7:
