You will notice after you have logged into myCourses that we have added a new drop-down menu entitled "Recommended Browsers." The drop-down menu contains quick links to free downloads for Google Chrome or Firefox which are the preferred browser for myCourses (Moodle). Also a good idea to make sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome and/or Mozilla Firefox.
