Online Viewing

September 7, 2016 - September 7, 2016

1.   From the Class Recordings page, click the course title you want to view. 

Thumbnail images of the chapter index entries and the titles of the chapters appear below the class title, as shown in the following figure. 

The icon to the left of the class title indicates whether the thumbnails are: shown Shown Thumbnail  or hidden Hidden Thumbnail


Record a Class 

If you stop a recording while it is playing, the next time you access the same recording, a new thumbnail image appears before the other thumbnail images. This new thumbnail image enables you to resume your playback from where you left off during the previous playback session.

Note: The Resume thumbnail image only appears if you previously viewed this recording and stopped it at some point before the end of the recording.  Please see diagram below.

Select Starting Point


To select a starting point for viewing:


Hover your mouse over the chapter index entries to view enlarged index entries.


Click the first chapter index entry (indicated by a (1) under the thumbnail image)

to view the recording from the beginning.


Click any other index entry to view the recording from that starting point.

The class recording is played starting from the selected chapter.

An indication in the lower left corner displays the current playback time and the length of the recording (in the format hh:mm:ss/hh:mm:ss). This is followed by an icon which provides an indication of the network connection status.

A problematic playback may indicate a problem with the network connection, such as not enough bandwidth or a disruption in your network connection. Tegrity provides you with a method to help diagnose the problem. Click the network connection status icon to view additional details about the network status. You can click Test my computer to obtain additional information about your network connection.
