A quick overview of our site

- When you visit, you have likely come to learn something. So, how do you find what you are looking for? At the top of nearly every page on our site, you'll find this Library menu in the navigation bar. By hovering your mouse over it, you'll find you can browse by subject in the left panel, by subject topic in the middle panel, or by Software associated with that subject on the right. For example, I can come here to the Business subject, and choose Management to see all the courses related to Business Management.

If you are looking for a specific Software product and don't see it in one of those lists, you would go to the Featured menu and select Software. Here you will see a list of all the Software and Software publishers listed in alphabetical order. For example, under the letter A, you'll find a link to courses covering Acrobat as well as Adobe, the company that publishes Acrobat. You can either scroll the list to find what you are looking for, or select a single letter up at the top to jump to that letter's list of Software and publisher.

If you would like to see a listing of all of our latest releases you'll find them on the homepage which you can always get to by clicking the logo up at the top of any page. Scroll down to New Courses and here you can view all the latest releases by clicking through this list. And if you would like to narrow the search, just select this menu, and you can now search for new courses by subject. We also have a powerful search feature. Simply type the topic you're looking for up here in the search bar such as, Agile Management and click the search icon, and every course or video related to that topic will appear in this list.

The more specific you can be with your search terms the better results you will get. You can also filter your search results as well. For example, if I come over here, and select Courses, to show just the courses that match that search, rather than the individual videos, I will see fewer results populate, and it will be much easier to find what I'm looking for. I can further narrow down this list by adding another filter, such as, Advanced, under skill level, and now I'll see a list of courses aimed at viewers with more experience in Agile Management.

If you would like to see results for individual videos, rather than an entire course, click Videos. And now, I see the names of specific videos within the resulting courses. Now, let's take a look at an actual course. Let's say I'm interested in learning Adobe Dreamweaver CC. I'll go to the Library menu, and go down to Web and navigate over to Dreamweaver. That gives me a long list of results. So, I'll filter the list to just show me Dreamweaver CC courses.

And now, I only have nine results. You have the option of viewing this in either this default detailed view, or you can switch over to the basic view. You can also sort those by clicking on this menu option and choosing release date or course titles. You can also remove your filters by clicking on the X on the Filters list under Selected Filters. So, when you find the course that your looking for click the link to that course and it will take you to the course's page.

You can scroll down the page to see the Table of Contents in this course. If you're logged in as a member, like I am, in this view, all the links will be active in this list. If you're just visiting, you'll notice that some of these links in the Table of Contents are active and others are not, as indicated by a gray lock icon that'll appear next to the video titles. But you will see that ten percent of every course on has content available for free. Watching these free movies will give you an idea of what the quality of our courses is like.

So, to watch a video, simply click on the video name in the Table of Contents. And now, that video starts playing. Now, if you have a premium membership to, and you are logged in, you'll also have access to the Exercise Files for each course. Exercise Files are the same files that each instructor uses in his or her respective courses. Being able to download the Exercise Files means that you'll be able to work alongside the videos using the exact same assets that you see on screen.

We also offer closed captioning on select courses. If the course you're watching includes closed captioning, you'll see this CC icon here in the video details. You can also view the entire transcript of a movie to scim the contents to see if it contains the information you are looking for by clicking the Transcript tab. Clicking on any line of text will jump you to that point in the video and begin playing. You're also able to search for text within the course by typing a word or phrase into the Search This Course field.

Our system also tracks the videos or movies you watch so you can keep track of the courses that you've started and completed. And you can also see where you've left off so you can return to that point when you want to begin watching again. So, there you have it. A brief overview of how our Library works. Throughout the rest of this entire course I'll be getting into more details about several of the features we just looked at as well as many other features and components of our site.
