Problems with Internet Explorer

If you use Internet Explorer 11 as your browser, you might receive an error notification when you click a weblecture. This is because the browser does not allow third party cookies. However, this is necessary for weblectures and other applications that work with an LTI-link. There are two ways to solve this problem:

  1. Use a different browser (like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge).
  2. Change the settings of your Internet Explorer.

Problems with third party cookies can also occur if you work with Safari. For Safari the same two methods apply to solve the problem.

Change the settings in Internet Explorer

  • Open the browser.
  • Click the settings icon in the top right corner.
  • Click Internet options. A new window will appear.
  • Click Privacy.
  • Click Advanced.
  • Select Always allow session cookies.
  • Click OK to save the new settings.

Error message Access denied

Do you receive an Access denied error message when you open a weblecture? Please contact your teacher or supervisor.


If the options above do not work or if you have additional questions, please send an email to [email protected].
