Learner releases

Learner view time

A new column on the history page (opens in new tab) shows your Course progress, or the sum of the duration of clips you have completed in a course. This is different from View time, which represents the total amount of time you’ve spent watching clips in a course.

Playlist section

Now the top-level Browse domain pages include a playlist section at the top of the page. The section replaces Beginner Favorites and contains three playlists of curated content. Each playlist contains a minimum of three and a maximum of twelve curated videos.

To find these:

  1. Click Browse.
  2. Click a category under Explore (for example, Software Development).
  3. Click See all in [category].

Certification study guides

Now study guides are accessible directly from the Program page. To find these:

  1. Click Browse.
  2. Click the certification (for example, AWS).
  3. Click the dropdown next to the certification prep (for example, AWS Cloud Practitioner) and click Open exam prep.
  4. Click PDF Study Guide.

Not all certifications have study guides. Currently there are study guides for AWS Cloud Practitioner and CISSP.

Program page update

Now the panel on the Certification prep content tab is on the left side of the page, helping you navigate to the content that you need.
