Currently, we are experiencing an issue with Java version 7U51 and Blackboard Collaborate sessions, which may be causing an "unable to launch the application" error message. Blackboard is working on a fix for this. In the meantime, there is a workaround you can perform if you're using version 7U51 of Java, described here
Some of Hodges University's online technologies utilize the Java plugin, an independent piece of software that ties in with your web browser of choice. Java and web browsers in general are regularly updated by the manufacturer, frequently for the purpose of patching potential security issues. It is the end-user's
responsibility to maintain current, patched versions of the software, while still complying with the more general software requirements specified by Hodges University
, and to stay apprised of any software updates that may be required to patch security issues.
