#help #instructors #students

Due to recent changes to the Chrome browser, students are having issues with accessing theTeach Meportion of 2007- and 2010-based lessons. The Chrome browser has slowly made changes to the way it displays Flash content. The Chrome browser will no longer allow off-screen Flash content to load without an explicit exception from the user. Chrome browser also requires a 1-time approval of Flash content in use by the Office 2013 simulation.

The simplest way for students to access the Teach Me portion of 2007 and 2010 Lesson content is to use a different browser. Firefox, Edge, and Internet Explorer successfully load 2007 and 2010 content without additional intervention.

Please follow the followinginstructions to approve Flash content in Chrome browser:

  • Click theCustomize and Control Google Chromemenu button, shaped like 3 vertical dots, in the upper right corner of the browser window.

  • Next, selectSettingsfrom the drop-down menu.

  • On theSettingsmenu select the**Show advanced settings…**link at the bottom.

  • In thePrivacysection of the expanded menu, click the**Content settings…**button.

  • On theContent settingsmenu, in theFlashsection click theManage Exceptionsbutton.

  • Type**[*.].simnetonline.comin theHostname patternbox and clickDone**.

  • Once you have completed these steps you can close theSettingstab.

  • For2007 and 2010 Lessons, you will need to click thePuzzle pieceicon in the upper right corner of the browser and select theRun all plugins this timelink.

Once you move forward one topic, all additionalTeach Mecontent will load for that browsing session. Each time you open a new lesson or reload the lesson content you will need to click thePuzzle pieceicon and theRun all plugins this timelink.

Unfortunately, the System Requirement Check is only able to detect if Flash Player is installed, not if the plugin will be available to SIMnet.
