WebCT upgrade

Some users have had to upgrade their browsers before they can use the recently-upgraded version of WebCT, the University’s online teaching support environment.

The University has recently upgraded WebCT to version 4.1. The upgraded version works well with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, but does not work with Netscape 4.7.

The supported browsers are:

  • AOL 7.0 (PC)
  • AOL 8.0 (PC)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0 (PC)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.1 (OS9, OSX 10.1)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.2 (OSX 10.2)
  • Netscape 6.2.x (PC and Mac)
  • Netscape 7.0 (PC andOSX)

Users you need another browser to use the new version of WebCT should contact the comedu helpdesk for a supported browser to be installed. Note that Netscape 7 does not include Calendar, so users of the University Calendar will need to keep their current calendar software installed.
