Loading External content

When trying to load external content from resources outside My.Seneca (including 3rd party applications such as Wimba), the content will be blocked unless it is hosted on a secure server (https://) or the link is set to open in a new window.

Please note this is not a Blackboard issue or bug, this is a security setting in web browsers.

You have to disable the web browser from blocking the content, but doing so will redirect you to My.Seneca home and will require you to navigate to the course content once again. This only has to be done once per session.

Each browser has a different solution
