  1. Exit your course.

  3. Tap Safari.
  4. Under Privacy, tap Accept Cookies.

Q: What timeout restrictions does LearningStudio have?
A: If a LearningStudio session is not sending or receiving data for more than 120 minutes, your session will timeout in order to maximize efficiency across the platform.

Most Internet Service Providers have a shorter timeout limit, which may lead to being disconnected from your course. Although supported, wireless and satellite connections typically have the shortest timeout limits, especially when accessed from a HotSpot, a place of business, or other public access points.

Because of these timeout behaviors, your work may be lost when entering a long response in a Threaded Discussion post or a Dropbox comment field. A useful practice is to type your response in Notepad, and then copy and paste your work into the appropriate field.
