The video player features controls commonly found in typical online video players.
On the left of the screen below the title “Video Course Lessons” you will see the section named “Categories”. As you progress through the lessons, the checkboxes to the left of each sub-category will automatically fill; keeping track of your progress. At any point, you may choose to view a previously accessed lesson or jump to one you have not yet viewed. Simply select the appropriate link in the Categories section to begin the desired lesson in the video player.
Note: An in-depth summary of your viewing history can be found in the “Progress Report section of the “Tools” tab.
Directly underneath the
video player there is a permalink available to be copied and pasted into your
browser, in the case you would like to synchronize your training with other
similarly enrolled individuals or classmates.
The Course Notes section directly below the video player operates as a fully functional text editor. Its features can be accessed at any time the section is displayed, including while viewing a video course. It allows you enter and save notes for later review/study.
Using the “Insert Course Topic” button, you can automatically insert the current topic you are viewing into your notes as a header.
Clicking the “Insert horizontal ruler” button creates a separator line as shown in the graphic. This is extremely useful for dividing your notes into logical grouping such as specific topics or course objectives.
The “Quizzes” section offers assessment quizzes for both “Pre” and “Post” lesson. This allows you to test not only what you have retained after each lesson, but also to see where you stand before starting the training. At any time inside a given course you can take a “Pre” or “Post” quiz for any lesson within it.
Once in the “Quizzes” section, you must first select which lesson on which to be quizzed from the “Select a Quiz" drop-down menu.
Once a lesson quiz is selected, click either the “Begin Pre-Test” or “Begin Post-Test” button.
While in the quiz mode select the answer you believe is correct and click the “Next Question” button. You can also choose to go back or end your quiz early using the exam control buttons located at the bottom right of the screen.
Upon completion of the quiz, you will receive a score report showing the percent of questions that were answered correctly.
NOTE: Ending the quiz before completing all questions marks the unanswered problems as incorrect and is reflected in your percentage score.
Upon returning to the “Quizzes” main page, you will notice that each attempt is recorded. The results for each effort are displayed as a single bar marker comprised of “Correct”, “Wrong” and “Not Answered” percentages. The graph also shows a green marker line that denotes the required passing percentage score. You may take the “Pre” and “Post” quizzes for any lesson an unlimited number of times.
In the “Simulation Exercises” section, you perform tasks in a virtual “real world” environment. Each simulation has three modes from which to choose:
Try Me: This mode opens by default. It allows you to work the simulation with no assistance.
Coach Me: This mode shows a short video of the simulation being completed successfully. There is no user interaction in this mode.
Show Steps: This mode displays the “How To Steps” below the exercise area. These are the exact steps in order you must use in order to complete the simulation.
Once you have completed the simulation correctly, you will receive a confirmation box. Click “OK” to move to the next simulation.
The glossary contains all of the terms and definitions related to the currently selected course.
The “Tools” tab contains links to track your progress and access the “Help” feature
The “Progress Report” shows the history of your course usage. This includes details for date, time, lessons that you have viewed, and all of your “Pre” and “Post” quiz scores.
