How to access your video course materials

- From the Course tab select, select the type of course materials you wish to view.
- Confirm you are on the Training Material tab.
- On the left side of the screen click on the Videos button to switch to the video course content.
- Select the module you wish to watch.
Video navigation tips
In the video window, you can watch a video, pause, restart, fast forward, change the speed, turn the captions on and off, expand to full screen.
Navigate between sub-sections
On the left side of the video window you can see the course table of contents. Hovering over a section will show you how many sub-sections it contains. You can also expand or collapse the section from the + and - buttons. Once you have found a section or sub-section you wish to navigate to, all you need to do is click it and the corresponding video will automatically start to play.
Once you started watching a video, you can also navigate to the previous or next video via the <prev and next> arrows located above the video player.
By default, the videos are set to auto-play, so once you have finished watching a video the next video will automatically start to play. You can disable or re-enable this function by clicking the autoplay button at the top of the video player.
When playing videos in the video window, you will be able to view a transcript underneath the video player.
When the video is playing, once a video starts playing, you will see the corresponding part of the transcript highlighted.
You can click on any sentence in the transcript and the video skip to that part.
Navigation from the video material to the corresponding book section
While hovering over the sections of the video material, you will see a book icon appear. Clicking the book icon will redirect you to the corresponding section or subsection of video content.
