We are happy you stopped by.
This issue relates to load speeds. Load speeds are a result of 2 factors: (1) the internal processing speed of the device being used, and (2) the speed of the internet connection. If you have an older device, it often has a slower processor and thus takes longer to load things, or if you are using a wireless router that doesn't have a big bandwidth (or has lots of other devices accessing the wireless router), it can slow down the speed with which videos load.
You may notice that if you have a period of inactivity, the Learning Management System (called Absorb) will log you off, but often you can't tell you've been logged off. That's because the system usually keeps you on the same screen, even after logging you off, rather than taking you back to the Login screen.
If you notice that a certain Asset is not loading or not working the way you think it should, the first step you should take is to Refresh your browser (the circle with an arrow on the address bar is the Refresh button). If Absorb has logged you out, then when you hit Refresh, it will take you back to the Login screen and you will need to enter your Username and Password to log back in.

In the latest software update, Google Chrome has set the default setting to Block Flash. In some cases, you may have to change this setting each time you re-start Chrome, though in most cases, the settings will stay as you set them. So, you have two options if you run into problems with Chrome: (1) Use a different browser (2) Use Chrome and follow the steps below.
