Disable Pop-Up Blocking for Blackboard

 

While using Blackboard, if you are unable to view discussion postings, quiz windows, open email and download links, then you need to disable pop-up blocking.

Depending on the pop-up blocking software you are using, you may be able to set https://sdccd.blackboard.com as allowed sites, or you may need to disable the pop-up blocker while using Blackboard.

Pop-up blockers work in the background while you browse the Internet. When they detect a pop-up window that may be an unwanted advertisement, they automatically close the window. This can prevent Blackboard from performing properly.

To disable pop-up blockers for Blackboard:

  1. Search your hard drive for any software with "pop-up" in the name. Disable it or set https://online.sdccd.edu as an allowed site. Examples of popular pop-up blocking applications include:
    • Pop-Up Stopper
    • Pop-Up Defender
    • Pop-Up Zapper
  2. Pop-up blocking functions are included in some anti-virus, internet security, personal firewall, and browser programs. Disable the relevant setting in the program or set https://online.sdccd.edu as allowed sites. Examples of programs that include pop-up blocking functions include the following:
San Diego City College San Diego Mesa College San Diego Miramar College San Diego Continuing Education
