The For-Real End of Access to Online Courses Using IE7

May 07, 2012 | 1 Minute Read

Although support for using Internet Explorer 7 to access online courses at the School of Public Health ended in June, 2011, there are still a handful of students and faculty who use IE7 to access their courses. If you use IE7 to access online courses, you are warned that it's not a supported browser and that you're going to run into problems with quizzes, the BBS, and other tools. You can still sign in to online courses, but sooner or later, you're going to run into problems.

On June 1, you will no longer be able to sign into online courses using Internet Explorer 7. If you use IE7, you won't see a sign in screen, so you won't be able to sign in. You will need to use one of the supported browsers for online courses at the School.

If you work at the School and still use IE7, JHSPH Information systems will gladly assist you in installing an up-to-date version of Firefox on your computer so you can access online courses. They won't remove IE7 from your computer because it is still needed to access Hopkins ONE at JHU. In addition to Firefox, both Google Chrome and Safari work great with the online course system.
