Anytime you sign back into your lynda.com account, it's easy to pick up where you last left off. Once you've signed in, you can click the Course History tab here under My Courses on the home page. And here you can see the five most recent courses you've watched, listed in chronological order, with the most recent course at the top of the list. To see your full course history click View All. And now I'm seeing my full course history. By default, the most recent video title is toggled open so you can see the videos you've watched in that course. You can click the arrows next to other courses to see the videos you've watched in those titles as well. Clicking on a video name takes you directly to that video on the course's page.
You can get back to your list of recently viewed videos at any time by going to the My Courses menu at the top of any page, and choosing Course History. Now, while you're here, you can also use the playlist buttons to add any of these courses to any of your playlist. You can check on your progress in any of the courses, and see how much time it'll take to complete that course. And you can also see how long ago you've viewed movies from that course. You can also sort your course history by clicking any of these column headers. So now I can see all the courses that I finished 100% of, and the rest are organized by the amount of progress I've made in them.
Clicking on any header a second time reverses that order. I'll set this back to the last viewed order. To remove any courses from your course history, just click the x button. So that's how to view and manage your course history.
