The new Bookmarks feature in the Online Training Library® lets you mark and tag courses, chapters, individual video tutorials, or even specific points in a video in order to find them again later. Click on Bookmarks in the My Training menu to see all the items you’ve bookmarked.
Add details to your bookmarks by clicking on the arrow next to the bookmark icon. This opens a window in which to add reminders about why you bookmarked the item. For example, you may have marked it because you thought the information was important, or because you didn’t watch the movie yet and want to remind yourself to do so later.
Adding tags makes it easier to sort your bookmarks. Create your own tags using words that remind you of projects, ideas, or other details relating to that course or tutorial. Write each tag separated by spaces, and put multi-word tags in quotes. As you start typing, suggested tags appear that you have the option to choose.
If you wish to add a bookmark at a specific point in a movie, click on the timecode bookmark while you are watching the movie. The bookmark icons will appear in your playback scrubber. Or bookmark the entire movie as you watch by clicking the icons above the timecode bookmarks.
