Learn@UW/D2L - Possible Security Prompt when Using Internet Explorer

There is a small chance that Learn@UW customers will receive the following security prompt when accessing their org or course homepages using Internet Explorer:

Security Information
Selecting Yes will allow you to continue.

Besides clicking through the prompts, options are to use browsers other than Internet Explorer, or to change a security setting within Internet Explorer. For the latter, do the following:

  1. From the Internet Explorer menu bar, select Tools -> Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Internet Zone -> Custom Level.

  2. Under the "Miscellaneous" section, check Enable for "Display Mixed Content".

Please note that this change does not work if your Learn@UW sites are located in your Trusted Sites zone. This change also has the potential of lessening your security level.
