FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How will I know if the videos work on my computer?
Watch the free videos in each course to see how they look on your computer or mobile device. You'll need a solid Internet connection and a modern internet browser (we recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).
Can I watch the courses on my iPhone or iPad? What about Android?
Yup! As long as you have a wireless signal or Internet access, you can log in from any smartphone or tablet to watch the videos. We’ve tested the courses on iPhones and iPads, as well as a variety of Android devices. The courses look great on all devices, if we do say so ourselves.
Can I download the videos?
Sorry, downloading the video courses is not an option. But isn’t it great that you can stream them virtually anywhere?
Where can I download free software to use while I'm learning?
