Case Scenario Critical Reader - Common Issues - Project Wont Preview in Browser (UW-Madison)

Please refrain from developing new CSCR modules. UW-Madison is moving to the Canvas LMS. While CSCR modules can be loaded into Canvas courses, they cannot be connected to the Canvas gradebook. A team from the Teaching and Learning Technology Advisory Group (TLTAG) created a recommendation for alternate tools that you can see here. Members of the transition team would like to meet with you to help you select the solution(s) that best meets your needs to move your content. Please let us know when we can best assist you by completing this form or contact the designated instructional technologist for your school or college.

While working on a project locally , it is recommended that you preview your project often to get an idea of what the final version will look like. Here are a few reasons why your project may not be previewing:

  1. Preview blocked due to security reasons in Internet Explorer 10 or above, Chrome browser, or Safari 7 or above
    • For security reasons many browsers block local content from being previewed in the browser.

    • Previewing locally is done through Firefox, you can either set Firefox as your default browser or copy and paste the URL from the browser that gets launched into Firefox.

  2. Project only previews a few slides then breaks.
    • This is most likely because the navigation to the next page is broken. To fix this issue, delete the button pointing to the next page, as well as any blank space that may hold leftover navigation code. Re-insert the button pointing to the next page and preview again.
