What do I do if my presentation doesn't start?

This may happen for several reasons:

  1. If you click a lesson and a new window does not appear, a pop-up blocker may be preventing your training from displaying correctly. Please turn off pop-up blockers in your web browser and on any “Toolbars” built into the browser (e.g., Google Toolbar). If you get a blue screen and you can see the Flash logo in the background of the window, then you probably need to clear your browser's cache. 
  2. If a new window opens but the presentation screen is blank, your employer may be filtering multimedia files with a firewall or corporate security settings. This is especially common for users connected to the Internet remotely through a proxy server or VPN. Check with your IT/IS staff that Flash and MP3 files are allowed from 
  3. If you see a grey exclamation point (!) where your training should appear, your web browser may be operating in a “low memory” environment.  Try clearing your browser’s cache to correct this. For help, contact
