Video features

If you do not find these options, it is probably because you have been shunted to a back-up player. This happens occasionally because of heavy traffic or problems with the normal player.

If you have trouble selecting the options you may have to start the video player first.


  1. Under any video, click the Cogwheel button and select Speed

  2. Select the option to change the video speed to 0.25 - 2.0 times normal speed.


Subtitles/Closed captions

Under any video, click the CC icon  to turn Subtitles on.



To adjust Subtitles Settings, click the cogwheel icon and select Subtitles/CC, then Options.


Make your adjustment, for instance Font color Black and Background color Yellow.




Interactive transcript

Under any video, select Transcript. This not only shows exactly what is being said in the video, but it also allows the learners to easily jump around (e.g., repeat a section) more easily.
