  1. If a student is having problems accessing or loading the web content, then do the following:

    2. Reset Safari by opening safari and then clicking on Safari>Reset Safari from the menu
    3. Go to Safari>Preferences and Click on Privacy
    4. Under Block Cookies and other Website data, set to never.
    5. Clear files from the downloads in finder

    7. Any unauthorized applications downloaded from the AppStore or a website may interfere with the operation of the browser allowing content to open.  High use of social or media apps, audio players, etc can cause problems and conflicts with memory use causing content to not load.  It is highly recommended that any social or media software other than what is natively installed on the system be removed for optimal performance.
