Any time you sign back in to your lynda.com account, it's easy to pick up where you last left off. Once you've signed in, you can go to the course history tab, here under My Courses. Here you can see the five most recently courses you watched listed in chronological order, with the most recent course at the top of the list. You can click any of these courses to jump right to that course page. To see your full course history you can 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 watched in the course. You can click the arrows next to other courses to see the videos you've watched in those titles as well.
Click on any video name to launch that video right from here without having to navigate to the course details page first. >> Got my lens reversed. I had set the aperture on it to 5.6. >> And of course, if you do want to jump to a course directly, just click its name. You can get back to your list of recently viewed videos at any time by going to the My Courses menu and choosing Course History. Now while you're here, you can use the playlist button next to each course to add any of the courses to any of your playlists. You can check on your progress in any of the courses and see how much time it will take to complete the course. And you can see how long ago you last viewed movies from the course. You can also sort your course history by clicking any of these column headers. So now, I'm starting my course history by my progress. You can see I have three that are 100% complete.
Now they're sorted by the remaining time. Clicking any selected header reverses the order, so now I'm seeing the courses that have the most time left to go. And I'll just click Last Viewed again to go back to the default listing. To remove any courses from your course history, just click the X button. And that's how to view and manage your course history.
