"Help! I can't play back the video recording!"

We record our workshops in high-definition (HD) but the player we use should adjust the video quality to your relative connection speed. If the video does not play a few seconds after you click "play", the problem is likely due to a slow internet connection.

Videos may be slow to load using:
-analog / dial-up (60 kilobits per second)
-satellite internet

Fast internet connections are ideal for watching videos, such as:
-cable internet (25 megabits per second)
-fiber-optic (100 megabits per second)

If you have a slow internet connection, you may need to wait for the video to load. If you are using wireless internet, try moving to a different location within your home or area where you have three or more bars.

To test your internet speed: http://speedtest.net/
If it is slower than 20 Mbps, please be patient while the video loads.

Starting & Stopping the Video

You can stop and start the video at any time, and watch the video as many times as desired. You can also click anywhere along the timeline at the bottom of the video player to jump to that point in the video. Please be patient while the video loads.

As the video plays, the "time marker", play/pause button, volume settings, etc. disappear. If you move your mouse over the video, they will re-appear at the bottom. You will notice a long bar at the bottom of the video. The dark grey shows the portion of the video you have not watched yet. The white part, or the "time marker" shows you where you are currently in the video and how much you have already watched. To change your spot in the video, simply click elsewhere on the line. You will also notice the video's length at the right side of the bar.

When will I get the access codes for the Live Chats?

You don't need an access code. If you are an Online University subscriber, you will receive the link to the meeting room three days ahead of time, and a reminder one hour before the live chat begins. To ensure you receive it, please make sure your email address is spelled correctly in your account and add [email protected] to your email address book.
