To watch a video or read the transcript, click on the play button.
Clicking play will open the video in a new view. Notice that you have several options within the player to optimize your viewing. Adjust the video’s volume or video quality, and also add closed captions to your video.
This view also allows you to watch the video and the transcript simultaneously. The text currently spoken will highlight within the transcript. Click on a section of the text to skip to that section of the video. As you scroll through the transcript, the video will follow.
These transcriptions allow the video to be searchable by keywords or phrases using our search tools, and opens the door to powerful note taking and discussion tools. To start a discussion in the transcript, hover over the margin of your text and click the note icon. This will open a new note.
You can also view the video in our Media Viewer. Once you’ve selected to play the video, click on the Media Viewer button directly below the video.
The Media Viewer also allows you to watch the video and the transcript simultaneously. Click on a section of the text to skip to that section of the video.

The left button allows you to navigate to the Video Gallery where you can view all the videos in your course. Click on one to begin watching.
