The session material: video lecture, lecture hand outs, session assignments,session quiz are organized under multiple tabs in the center right panel. By default, the video lecture (if it exists) is open. You can select any tab to review the material under it.

When finished with one Session, you can change sessions to view, by clicking on the title of an alternate session.

  • Description / Action Center Right - When the Course is first selected, the description of the course is displayed here. When "Take This Session" is selected, the material for the Session is displayed in a series of tabs. If a specific type of material does not exist for that Session, its tab will be grayed out. You can choose the tab that you want to view.
