Getting the right browser setup and running is critical to your success with online coursework. Mozilla Firefox is the browser of choice and is at the top of our recommended list for Clark’s Moodle as it presents the fewest issues for our users. Firefox installs easily and comes setup for access to your online courses. You can still use another browser as your default choice for surfing, but to go to class, just fire up Firefox and access Moodle with that instead.
If your instructor requires you to use Internet Explorer for your class, you could use Internet Explorer 8 after clicking the “Compatibility View” button. By placing the IE 8 browser in compatibility mode you will force the browser to behave as an IE 7 version while working in Moodle. This is important so you can view all content, assignments, forum text boxes, etc. Moodle users have been reporting multiple incompatibility issues with Internet Explorer 9, so we are advising that users switch to Firefox instead.
You should also be aware that two other popular browsers, Safari and Chrome, are not recommended for use with our current version of Moodle. Users have reported multiple issues with forum editor tools, Wiris equation editor, display errors, and quizzes. Once again, Firefox for Windows or Mac should be the browser of choice.
