How can I stop alerts for non-secure content and ensure that I see my instructor's media?
How to enable mixed content in your browser
While working in your courses, you may find that you can't see some of the images that are embedded in the content. Or, you may find that, at times, you are prompted to accept display of non-secure items on pages. This is because the web page designer may link to non-secure elements in lessons, assignments or other materials (e.g. images located on http servers, as opposed to https, secure servers, like Etudes).
Please adjust your browser's settings to ensure that you see mixed content that may be included in your classes.
Go to Options >> Security >> Settings >> Uncheck "show warnings" >> OK + OK

You can turn off the alert messages completely by unchecking the following warnings under Internet Options >> Advanced tab. You want to be sure to restart Internet Explorer when you are done.
Additionally, you want to enable "Display mixed content" under Miscellaneous. See the screen shots below. This setting is located under Internet Options >> Security >> Under the Custom tab.
You will need to restart IE.
