Safari 11.1 is not functioning properly with Blackboard.
We have been informed that Safari 11.1, which is included in the Mac OS 10.13 (High Sierra) update, is not functioning properly with Blackboard. Primarily, users find they are not able to attach documents to Blackboard using Safari 11.1
Blackboard is aware of the problem and is working on a solution.
Until a solution is found, the fastest overall workaround is for students and faculty to use an alternative browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.
Detailed summary of issues:
Instructors cannot attach a file to an Item in Blackboard
The screen stalls - it does not appear to be completing the attachment operation. When faculty attempt to exit the window or click Cancel, they get the error message, "Your browser does not support adding local files by dragging/dropping folder ..."
Click Build Content and choose File from the list (use the File content type rather than attaching a file to an Item).
