Recently some browsers, specifically, Safari and Chrome, have changed settings for auto-play on video and audio which may cause issues within a small number of courses. You will not experience this issue with the majority of courses, but you may encounter this issue with a handful of courses as we continue to upgrade them. We apologize for any inconvenience these browser changes have had on your learning experience.
Venture Beat says that "Chrome justifies this new approach by saying that while autoplay can make it faster and easier to consume on the web, unexpected media playback is also one of the most frequent user concerns because it can use data, consume power, and make unwanted noise while browsing."
To adjust your settings so that autoplay is enabled in Chrome:
1. Click on the lock icon in the address bar, then select Site Settings.
2. On the Site Settings page, under Sound select Allow.
To adjust your settings so that autoplay is enabled in Safari:
1. With Safari open, select the Safari menu option, then select Settings for This Website.
2. Change Auto-Play to Allow All Auto-Play.
