3. Known issue with scroll bar in Respondus

4. Safari web browser on Apple iOS devices such as an iPad or iPhone have seen compatibility problems with use of mobile Safari to access the Faculty and Student Centers and other CMS features.  For this reason, we recommend against the use of Mobile Safari at this time.
