Chat Issues (java not loading):

Blackboard uses java applets with the Collaboration-Chat/Virtual Classrooms, and with the Content Collection, etc.  You may get calls since the last Firefox update no longer supports java.

Firefox has a version that will still support Java for another year.  You will just need to upgrade your browser to the ESR version.    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/

They will need to download the 32bit version NOT the 64-bit for it to work however.
