Hey, here I am! The following is my quote from the CTLDOC list:
"In supporting faculty this semester, I have noticed that there seems to be
trouble with any WebCT function that involves opening a new browser window.
With further investigation, I have found that these problems are isolated to
Internet Explorer, and tend to be more abundant with the installation of the
latest service pak on XP. I have found that in all cases, the problems do not
occur when a different browser is used."
Some of the functions that have failed: Mail, Discussion, Browse. Also, linnks
created with WebCT tools that are set up to open a new browser window also
Hope this helps the discussion.
