Enabling Pop-Ups for Shasta College Online/Moodle


In order to take some tests, and to make full use of the Moodle Messaging system, you must enable Pop-Ups for the Shasta College Online/Moodle. Most browsers will have an automatic Pop-Up blocker, and there may be additional ones built into add-ons you may have such as Google or Yahoo toolbars.

You may need to enable Pop-Ups in more than one place to ensure you receive your messages instantly. Instructions are given below for the two recommended browsers, Internet Explorer 9 & Firefox. You may need to search the web for how-to instructions regarding Pop-Up controls for other browsers or add-ins, such as Google Chrome and Safari, though the process should be similar.
