IMPORTANT: If you will be accessing any of the online content at a work location, it is strongly recommended that you first check with your IT department or Network Administrator to ensure that you have appropriate permissions to install programs and/or the ability to access streaming media.
How do I watch (launch) my program?
If the course is a playable format, when in your account, you will see a large "Play" button. The Play button is what you use to watch your program. On-Demand products can be accessed at your leisure. If you are connecting to a live program (webcast/webinar), you will not be able to start the program until the date/time listed in the product details. If the program is a Zoom Webinar, the “Play” button will open a window with the corresponding Zoom link. Downloadable content will have a green "Download" button that you press to either play the content from the site, or download and save to your computer.
When I click on the “Play” button, nothing happens. What should I do?
When you click the green 'Play' button, it will launch the viewer in a new window or a Zoom link in a new window. If you are clicking this button and nothing is happening, more than likely the viewer window is already open. Please check all open and/or minimized windows.
