5. Tips and Troubleshooting: Accessing Content

Having trouble accessing Content?

  • If you are unable to open a video link (and it says "Powered by Panopto" or "Click here to request access"), you may just need to authenticate your Panopto access.
  • To do this, click on UA Tools in the navbar and select Panopto from the drop down list.Panopto

     

  • A new window will open to the Panopto file for the course. Return to the D2L course content page and click on the link for the video again.

Still not playing?

  • You may need to clear your cache. Browser specific steps are detailed here: https://refreshyourcache.com/en/home/.
  • We recommend using Chrome or Firefox.
  • Switch to a different browser. 

Link to a quiz, discussion, or assignment folder not working?

  • Go directly to the Quiz navbar link, Discussion navbar link, or the Assignment navbar link.Navbar

     

Links in a module not working?

  • If you can see a link in a module but it does not open, your Instructor may have set a start date well in the future, or created a release condition to access the link. Your Instructor may not want students working so far ahead. Start Date

     

  • If you are certain you should have access, contact your Instructor.
