Learning is not attained by chance, it must
be sought for with ardor and diligence.

See What Courses You've Watched
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   2 months ago

While I'm on the topic of site upgrades, I added another feature for you guys today. Lots of people have been asking me if there's a way to see what courses you've previously watched. Well, I haven't been logging that data in a database until today. Sure, I could go into my server logs and figure out what someone has watched, but now we've got a proper way to keep track.

With the new My Views page, you can now get a list of every course you've watched, beginning today (02 Aug 2020). If you're watching any of my newer courses like Access Developer 15 or the SharePoint Seminar, the exact lesson will be logged. This will allow you to pick right up where you left off if you have to stop your learning at any point. I don't have a way to track exactly how much of the video you've watched, but I'm working on it.


I'm storing all of this data in a table on the server. This page will currently show up to your last 50 views. I will increase this in the future to show all of them, but I have to add paging and such. I'll get to that eventually.

If you're watching a video in the Classic Theater, sorry, but just the course name itself will be logged in this table. However, if you look in the bottom-left corner under the Settings group, you will see the last lesson video you watched. This is stored in your browser (as a cookie, for my web nerds). As long as you don't clear your cookies or your browser history, this should point you to where you left off.

Also note that only PAID courses will show up in the new My Views list. Free lessons, and most introduction videos are not logged.

OK, enjoy the upgrade and keep learning!

Richard
