Disabling 3rd Party Cookies

Chrome

When in Moodle, Chrome can sometimes block you from accessing your MyMedia section (Kaltura). This is caused by a setting meant to prevent companies from tracking your browsing habits across multiple websites. Unfortunately, this can also block Kaltura. You can unblock your MyMedia (Kaltura) section by disabling 3rd Party cookies in Chrome. This will allow you to view the MyMedia (Kaltura) videos but it will also make it easier for advertisers to gather data about what you've been browsing to deliver targeted ads. Here's how to disable 3rd Party cookies in Chrome:

  1. Open Chrome.
    1. On a Windows computer, click on the 3 vertical dots   (upper-right).
    2. On a macOS computer, choose Preferences from the menu bar (upper-left).
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Under Privacy and Security, click on Site Settings.
  4. Click on Cookies and Site Data.
  5. Toggle Block third-party cookies off.

Safari

Safari in iOS 11 introduced a new tracking prevention feature that's meant to protect your privacy and make it harder for companies to track your browsing habits across multiple websites. Unfortunately, this can also block Kaltura. You can unblock Kaltura by disabling Prevent Cross-Site Tracking on each device. This will allow you to view the Kaltura videos but it will also make it easier for advertisers to gather data about what you've been browsing to deliver targeted ads. Here's how to disable the feature to access Kaltura:

  1. Open Safari.
  2. Under the Safari tabbed menu (upper-left of your screen), choose Preferences.
