Grey ShieldFirefox is UTC’s preferred browser for use with Blackboard. However, the most recent release of Firefox (23) may impact your viewing of YouTube videos and other media from within Blackboard.

Both Google Chrome and Firefox have implemented more secure browser settings, which will block certain media while browsing within a secure environment, such as Blackboard. However, this feature works similar to your browser’s pop-up blocker and is easy to “turn off” and unblock desired media in a course.

If you notice a missing YouTube video in your Blackboard course, look for a small shield icon to the left of the navigation bar (the website address) in Firefox or to the right in Chrome. Click on the shield and follow the prompts to unblock the missing material.
