No Java Support.
If you see nothing to the left (or just a gray box) then Java functionality is not available. Java is only used for virtual classroom and multiple file upload and is not required for a vast majority of Blackboard's functionality.

WARNING: A recent advisory has indicated Java 7 update 10 and earlier versions of Java 7 contain a security vulnerability. We are recommending all users of Java 1.7 upgrade to the latest version of Java (currently 1.7.0_21). Download Java.

NOTE: Java 1.6 is not impacted by the security vulnerability.
