We’ve added some new features to the site this week that we think will make it easier for you to get the most out of the video2brain library, keep track of what you’ve already viewed, and find courses and videos that you’re interested in.
Track Your Progress
One of the most frequently requested features has been an easy way to see what lessons you’ve viewed, so you can track where you are in a course. In the past, this was possible if you downloaded our courses or used our apps, but not on the site.
Now, when you watch a lesson on the site, a checkmark appears next to that video. This will happen automatically from here on out, but you can also toggle these checkmarks on and off if you want to mark videos you watched in the past.
You can also now bookmark a course or lesson that you want to revisit by clicking the star icon on the course page, in the table of contents, or on the video page. If you want to see all your bookmarked content, just visit My Watchlist in the (updated) My video2brain area that shows up as soon as you log in to the site.
We think the site bookmark feature will be especially helpful if you’re a subscriber. Now you have an easy way to pick out the courses that you’re most interested in and put them all in one handy place.
Keeping All Devices in Sync
But you don’t need to buy a course or subscribe to the library to use these features. Anyone with a free video2brain account can add bookmarks and keep track of viewed lessons. And if you’re using our free Android or iPad apps, and you log in to your account there, you will see that your viewed lessons and bookmarked content are all in sync.
More Details to Discover
On the course pages you’ll also find small icons representing the software used in the course. These link to a page dedicated to that topic or software, which makes it easy for you to discover related courses in your field of interest or sign up to receive automated alerts whenever a new course is added in that area.
There are many small improvements throughout the site for you to discover and we have lots more features in development.
