Things to Try if You Can’t Open a Course Item in D2L

  1. Check to see that you have the latest updates or at least a "reader" for the content.  You may need to get the latest updates for Flash Player or Adobe Reader, etc. or get a free reader for the content  (i.e. Microsoft Word reader).
  2. Logout, turn off your computer, then re-start it after about 30 seconds.  Then try to open the media again.
  3. Try Saving the media to your desktop and then accessing it from your desktop file you just created.
  4. If you still have problems with opening the media, then contact your instructor.
