A. This greatly depends on your internet connection speed. If you have a high speed cable modem or DSL, you should have very little wait time (usually just a second or two. If you are using a slow dial-up modem, your wait time can vary as almost all pages have some sort of media and graphics to load. This course material is placed on a superior "best-in-class" server with virtually no downtime or congestion. Basically, this means that if the pages take time to load, it is highly likely that the problems is your internet connection or your computer itself.
Q. This message/warning popped up, why?
Also, when I click on the warning, this dialog box pops up, why
A. These Security warnings are part of IE and appear whenever a Media and/or Active X is on a web page. Just click on the security warning, allow it to run, then click on the Run button in the dialog box. The media in this case is our Text-to-Speech and Flash Presentation feature. To solve this issue from continually happening, change your Security Zone settings and follow these steps:
1. Start your IE browser, on Tools menu, point to Options, then click Security tab.
2. Forward to Secure Content section, click the zone (Internet or Restricted Sites Zone) that you want, then under Security Level for this zone, drag the slider to a lower setting than your pervious setting.
3. Click Apply and then close the dialog box.
