Learn how to find, access, and view courses in the lynda.com training library. Staff author Garrick Chow explains how to find the "need to know" material quickly and browse other subjects you might be interested in. A full rundown of the types of training offered is included, from in-depth essential training on specific software packages, to first looks at up-and-coming technology trends, to inspirational documentaries following creative professionals working in a variety of disciplines. Garrick also shows how to use special library features such as bookmarks, the queue, certificates of completion, frequently asked questions (FAQs), and more, as well as where to turn for help when you need it. Plus, learn to access lynda.com on the go, either through our mobile site, or the iOS app, which also supports playing videos on your TV via AirPlay and an Apple TV.
As previously mentioned, each new course released on the library includes transcripts of each movie, which are usually added anywhere between a few days to a week or two after the course is released. If you see the little CC icon on the Course detail page, that lets you know that the course has had transcripts added. And again, closed captioning has multiple purposes. First it allows our members with hearing impairments to be able to follow along with our training. But closed captioning can also be convenient if you're in an environment where you can't listen to audio or if you don't have headphones and don't want to bother other people around you.
In those cases you can simply turn your computer volume off, turn on closed captioning and you'll still be able to learn. Now you can turn closed captioning on and off in two ways. First, you can go to the Preferences tab on any course page that has closed captions. And here click On under Closed Captioning, and then click Update Preferences. With that select, all movies will play with closed captions on. >> Phasing in Revit gives us the ability to apply the fourth dimension or time to our projects. Revit's approach to phasing is simple and straightforward.
A simple timeline is established for your project that includes one or more points in time. >> Notice the CC icon here in the playback controls is highlighted. So you can also turn and close captions on and off by toggling the CC button. Now even when I have closed captions turned off, when I close this player, notice it's still turned on here under Preferences. So if I were to play another move right now, closed captions would still be on. >> Phasing can be a little tricky to understand at first because there is a few different places where you need to look to configure its various settings and features.
>> Of course, I can toggle them off again. But to adjust their default state, I need to go back to preferences and turn them back off from here and update my preferences. And that's how to work with closed captions, in any course that has them.
