Why do I need Java?

eLearningBCC requires that you have Java installed in order for certain course features to work properly. The first time you access eLearningBCC you may be prompted to "run" an application. Say "yes" or "ok" if prompted. We also highly recommend that you check the box that says "always trust" so that you don't get prompted again the next time you log on.
