I uploaded Power Point slides to my course, why are some students having problems viewing them?

There might be a few possible issues. Here are the fixes:


1. Use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer as your browser. This will fix the problem. Here is a link to the free download.

2. If you are using Internet Explorer to view the course page, when you click on the Power Point link, instead of selecting "open" file, choose "save." The file will download to your computer and then you should be able to open it.

3. If you are using Internet Explorer to view the course page and when you click on PPT, a blank page opens up, you need to add to your Internet Explorer's trusted sites. Click here to see how to do that.

4. If you don't have Power Point on the computer that you are using to view the files, you won't be able to view Power Point slides unless you have a PPT Viewer. You can download the viewer here . It is free from Microsoft.
