Set Network Player Download Paths

The local network paths that are used for downloading and launching content are set at the OU level via Set Network Player Download Paths preferences. Up to four network paths can be defined. The organizational unit (OU) that is used to define Local Network Player download paths is set during implementation. See Local Network Player Overview.

Note: This page is only available if the Local Network Player is enabled.

To access the Set Network Player Download Paths preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Preferences > Network Player Download Paths.

To define a download path, enter the appropriate path in one of the available Download Path fields. The character limit is 5000. An active network path that is defined for an OU will be available for an administrator when downloading a course via the course catalog or for a user when launching a course offline via their transcript.

Select the Active option to make the download path active and available for use. If a download path is not active, then it cannot be used for launching or downloading courses.

Overwrite Settings

Select this option to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

  • If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings are updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.
  • A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.
  • An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.
