Step 2: After clicking on the “Lock Icon” a small window pops up with various options. In this window, you will see the word “Flash” with a drop-down box to the right of it. This drop-down box has 3 options which are Ask, Allow, and Block. Set the Flash drop-down box to “Allow”. If you click the “Lock Icon” and do not see the word “Flash” and the drop-down box next to it is not there then see Step 4 below for further instructions.

Step 3: After selecting the “Allow” option next to the word “Flash” close the window and go back to your course and relaunch it.

Step 4: When you click the “Lock Icon” and the small window pops up if you do not see the “Flash Option” to allow Flash then click the “Site Settings” button. After clicking this button you will be taken to the browser settings page. You will see and area in the middle of the page that says “Permissions” and you will notice several different permissions and to the right of these permissions the ability to set them to Ask, Allow and Block. Locate the “Flash” permission which has a puzzle piece to the left of it and set this permission to “Allow”. Then exit the browser settings by clicking the “X” next to the tab at the top of the labeled “Settings”. Go back to your course, relaunch it and now it should play great.

Those with version 10 or newer (but still older than Safari 11) should continue on to step four, as listed above. Those with versions earlier than 10 will need to select the “When visiting other websites” menu, then choose “On” for Adobe Flash Player.
