Reminder: End of Access to Online Courses and CoursePlus with Internet Explorer 8

March 21, 2013 | 1 Minute Read


Now that we're at the start of the fourth academic term, we wanted to take a moment to remind you that starting June 1, 2013, you will no longer be able to sign in to either CoursePlus or online courses with Internet Explorer 8.

We announced this at the start of the calendar year, but as 10% of the people who access online courses still use Internet Explorer 8, we wanted to post this reminder. Internet Explorer 8 stopped being a supported web browser in January, 2012, but you can still sign in to online courses and CoursePlus with Internet Explorer 8. That will change on June 1, 2013.

In addition to Internet Explorer 8 not being supported for online courses and CoursePlus, JHSPH Information Technology will end official support for the Windows XP operating system this summer as well. Windows XP will no longer be supported in any way by Microsoft in January, 2014, and JHSPH Information Technology is encouraging everyone within the JHSPH community to upgrade to Windows 7 at their earliest convenience.

If you are still using Internet Explorer 8 to access online courses or CoursePlus, now is a great time to make the switch to Google Chrome or Firefox!
