Having Trouble with AlcoholEdu?
Here are some common troubleshooting solutions:
- If you are using Internet Explorer, try a different browser such as Chrome (first choice), Firefox or Safari.
- You may be too far zoomed in. Try zooming out.
- Close all other applications and tabs. (iTunes, Facebook, YouTube, etc). Additionally, do not have any CDs or DVDs playing on the computer while viewing the course.
- Clear your cache.
- If on a wireless connection, try a wired connection.
- Switch to another supported browser. I would try Chrome first and then Firefox.
- Reboot the computer.
- Disable all popup blockers and 3rd party toolbars.
- Try accessing the course from a different connection (computer lab, library, etc.).
- Try watching the videos on your phone or tablet and then switch back to your computer to finish the course.
- Try accessing the course at a different time of day (eg. during non-peak internet usage hours, i.e. morning).
