Browser Support


D2L is committed to performing key application testing when new browser versions are released. However, due to the frequency of some browser releases, D2L cannot guarantee that each browser version will perform as expected. If you encounter any issues with any of the browser versions listed in the tables below, contact D2L Support, who will determine the best course of action for resolution. Reported issues are prioritized by supported browsers and then maintenance browsers.

Supported browsers are the latest or most recent browser versions that are tested against new versions of D2L products. Customers can report problems and receive support for issues. For an optimal experience, D2L recommends using supported browsers with D2L products.

Maintenance browsers are older browser versions that are not tested extensively against new versions of D2L products. Customers can still report problems and receive support for critical issues; however, D2L does not guarantee all issues will be addressed. A maintenance browser becomes officially unsupported after one year.

Note the following:



  • Ensure that your browser has JavaScript and Cookies enabled.

  • For desktop systems, you must have Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or greater.

For example, users can tag content using their own taxonomy to facilitate continued easy navigation as the learner accumulates documents. <br /><li> <br /><b>Amplified</b> - Learners can have an interactive and engaging experience when viewing documents. For example, the application has swipe and tap functionalities, allowing learners to navigate between documents and interact with the content such as hyperlinks and images. <br /><li> <br /><b>Personalized</b> - Using the Document Viewer, users can tailor their experience based on their preferences. For example, the application allows learners to select from essential annotation tools and customize the colors and styles that they want to use. <br /><li> <br /><b>Productive </b>- The flexibility of e-text seamlessly adapts to the study habits of learners, to help them efficiently and effectively grasp concepts.
