August 6, 2009 by Chad Shorter

Playing your media:

The Digital Learning Lab provides many links to media files for L&S courses.  Follow these steps to play a file:

  1. Go to the Digital Learning Lab site:  lss.wisc.edu/digital-learning-lab
  2. Find and click on the link for your course.
  3. Scroll down past the text listing to arrive at the media files.
  4. To play a file, simply click on the hyperlink on the detailed media listing.  You may be prompted for a password (login names and passwords are available only from your instructor). 

If you get an "unblock" prompt:

If you are viewing movies or listening to audio from the Digital Learning Lab while in the LSS InfoLab, you may be prompted to unblock the web browser.  This behavior occurs in both Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.  The prompt appears after you have entered the correct username and password.

--->To view the movie or listen to the audio, click the "Unblock" button. 

At that point, you will see the movie/audio begin to load and you should be able to continue without any problems.
