Can I attend a virtual course or on-demand course or webinar using the Google Chrome browser?

Chrome has changed a default setting of NPAPI-plugin from enabled to disabled as of the April 2015 update to version 42. This may prevent you from running Saba Meeting in the Chrome browser. Instructions for resetting Chrome's setting to the previous default value (enabled). In Chrome v42 and newer, Google disables NPAPI plugins by default. Silverlight is a NPAPI plugin that is currently required to use the Panopto Editor, upload media, and view legacy Panopto sessions. If you have Silverlight installed but see the prompt, "To use this, please install Microsoft Silverlight," please follow the steps below to resolve this issue. How to Enable NPAPI plugins 1. Open Chrome and browse to chrome://flags/#enable-npapi 2. Click the "Enable" NPAPI setting 3. Click "Relaunch Now" at the bottom of your Chrome window. Note: Closing and reopening Chrome is not sufficient, you must click the "Relaunch Now" button. If you previously had no trouble running Saba Meeting but are now getting stuck at "Preparing to Load," this is most likely the problem. This does not affect Internet Explorer.
