since many sites now provide secure access, you could try just adding the s to the url. Try changing http:// To https:// At the beginning of the url link address.

I've never had this not work for me except when the site's server does not have a valid certificate.

Thanks for your input. I was able to fix it. I had to allow script  then it downloaded the power point rather then showing it through canvas.

Hi  @ijgiuliani ​...

Last year, stefaniesanders​ wrote document called External or "insecure" content: Strategies for helping students cope over in the Higher Education group here in the Canvas Community.  (If you aren't following that group, you can click on the link I've provided, and then click on the "Follow" link at the top right corner of the page.)  Does her document help solve the issue you are seeing in your course?

If web content is insecure then often a good psychologist or some behavioral therapy will help.

These days there is no reason why a site should be unsecure.  You can get free certificates, so I don't imagine that it is a cost thing.  But I also am finding that many sites do have that option, so just add the "s".
