Media Players

Some courses have lectures and portions of assignments that require the playing of sound and/or video files. Most courses provide links to the required video players (Flash or Quicktime). You will need to have these audio/video players installed on your computer.

For exams containing audio clips we use the .swf format. Which requires the Flash Player plugin. Be sure you have the latest Flash Player installed, if you need to check if your player is compatible, please use the link below.
