navigation button. To zoom out on a PC hit “control 0 (zero)” and on a Mac hit “command 0 (zero)”.


Trouble Viewing the Course Media (slides out of sync with the audio or long pauses while the audio/video clips load)?

This is usually due to to functional bandwidth limitations – heavy network traffic on your computer’s connection to the Internet – or to specific problems with certain media players.

Try the following:

  1. Ensure that you are using our minimum system requirements above.
  2. Select “Audio Only” for the Media Option on the MEDIA SETTINGS page.
  3. Close all other applications and tabs (i.e. iTunes, Facebook, YouTube) and do not have CD’s or DVD’s playing on the computer while viewing the course.
  4. Switch browser, but be sure to use another supported browser (IE, Firefox, or Safari).
  5. Reboot your computer.
  6. Uninstall and re-download the latest version of Flash.
  7. Disable all popup blockers and 3rd party toolbars.
  8. Try accessing the course from a different Internet connection, preferably high speed (computer lab, library). Other areas of the campus network may provide improved bandwidth or a particular machine may be infected with a bandwidth-consuming virus.
  9. Close all other applications and tabs (i.e. iTunes, Facebook, YouTube, etc.)
  10. Full Screen mode: Windows, press F11/Mac, click View menu on the browser and select Full Screen
  11.  Ensure the course is in its own browser window and not within a frame of the school portal or email
    client
  12. If on a wireless connection, try a wired connection
  13. Try accessing at a different time of day (during non-peak internet usage hours, i.e. morning)

Audio Settings – Enabling Closed Captioning     

Issue: You want to enable the closed captioning option in AlcoholEdu.

Solution: Perform the following steps:

• Log into AlcoholEdu and click Return to where I left off in the course.

• Scroll to the bottom and click MyAlcoholEdu on the left side of the page.

• Select Course Settings.

• Below Media Settings is a box which states: Click here to enable closed captioning.

• Close the MyAlcoholEdu window.

• Refresh your screen.

NOTE:  If you get an error “Caption list not found…” we apologize for the inconvenience. There are a few areas within the course where some closed captioning is not visible. We are currently working on this issue. If your deadline is approaching, it is still possible to watch the slides and move on in the course. If you are using closed captioning because of a hardware issue, we encourage you to find a computer with speakers. Again, we are very sorry for this inconvenience.


Will opening the course within frames cause problems?

Yes. When students open our course within a frame of another site or mail client, they will experience problems either accessing their account or making progress in their account. Please break out of all frames when linking to our URL from your school web site/communications.
