I just registered but I'm having problems logging in
If you have registered, but have not received an email with an activation link for your account, here are the steps to troubleshoot:
Can I speed up or slow down videos?
Yes, but you have to be using the HTML5 version of YouTube's video player. You can check if you are using it by going to YouTube's HTML5 video page. If you are using it you will see options to speed up or slow down the video by clicking the gear on the bottom right-hand corner of the YouTube video player.
How can I change the video resolution?
In order to make our material as widely available as possible the videos default to low resolution, 360p, but if you have good bandwidth we recommend bumping them up to 480p which will sharpen video and audio quality. On most platforms (not all) you can increase resolution by clicking near the bottom right of the video and then clicking the settings button
Why should I register?
Anyone can watch the videos without registering. Registering, however, will allow you to post questions, answers and comments and to upload new content. We also appreciate it when you register because by answering a few basic questions we can get an idea of who our audience is and how we should design future courses.
