Because of changes to the Chrome web browser, it is no longer possible to use web sites that require plugins. This includes a number of web sites used for teaching, including some with videos you may have been able to show using Chrome in the past. Web-based applications will also be affected by these changes.
Please consult our list of available applications and supported web-browsers in U-KNOW to check if a particular application continues to work with Google Chrome. This list is not exhaustive, but it does list a number of web applications used at Drew. Academic sites such as Moodle, ChemBioDraw, and SPSS are listed at the bottom of the page. We recommend testing any site you have used or plan to use for teaching to see whether it works in Chrome before using it in class. If this isn't possible, please keep in mind that you may need to switch to another browser right away.
University Technology will continue to support Chrome for web sites that do not require plugins as well as Internet Explorer and Safari on Windows and Mac platforms respectively. In addition, we will continue to distribute and configure Mozilla Firefox on Drew Windows and Mac computers as it is currently the browser available on both platforms which supports the majority of Drew standard software.
As always, the UT Service Center is available to respond to any questions or concerns you might have about transitioning to a different web browser. Please reach out to us by phone at 973-408-4357 (HELP), by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by logging a support ticket at help.drew.edu.
Please remember to call 1ITS (1487) if you experience any kind of technology problem during your class.
