Moving around in a video
When you get to the video page, use the transcript window to jump around in the lecture. To access the transcript window, click the blue arrow to the left of the slider bar (see illustration above). Then click on the button that says "Find" at the top of the Archive Transcript window (see red oval) to reveal a list of all the slides in the lecture. Click on a slide title, and you will be taken to that spot in the lecture. You can also move around in the lecture by clicking and dragging the slider bar.

Video Stream Requirements
It is recommended that you view the video streams on a high-speed connection such as cable or DSL modem, or from the campus library, but the audio should be useful on even the poorest/slowest connections. If you use a wireless connection to view the videos, you may experience some stalling, depending upon your connection speed. To view the more recent videos, you must have a plug-in called FlashPlayer (most computers have this). Older Nursing Grand Round videos require Windows Media Player. If you can't open the video files, view the download and installation instructions for Windows Media Player (which is free) and then try playing the file again.
