D2L Document Viewing Issue

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 13th January 2014

Per MnSCU System Office:

A few schools have reported a spinning “Loading” status when trying to view some documents in Content and in the Dropbox.  A temporary workaround is to click “Download” and view the document that way, rather than trying to view it from within Content or Dropbox. 

 If you are experiencing similar issues, please contact us.
