How it works
Videos and exercise files are accessible via links through the course home page here (scroll down). 

  • All videos may be watched in full-screen mode by clicking on the lower right corner. In the video frame. The volume control is on the right side, next to the play/ pause button.
  • This photo is an example (it is not a clickable link)of how your video frames are going to look. 



  • Give the video a little while to load.
  • Try not to have multiple chapters (web pages/ tabs) open. Having multiple pages with videos open at the same time will slow down your video load time.

Navigation example
  • The course pages have an easy navigation that will help to find the course homepage, previous and next chapter pages.
  • Note that you can mark each unit as completed as you successfully finish the episodes.
