Course instructions

You are required to view each video at least twice before attempting the quiz.  You can only move on to the next video upon successful completion of the accompanying quiz.  The pass mark is 100% – don’t worry, questions are designed to ensure you understood the video content, we are not trying to catch you out!    In case you do not pass the quiz the first time, you can re-watch the video and take the quiz again.   Once its passed, you can move on to the next module.

While watching each video, pay close attention and concentrate on the content.  Do not let any distractions reduce your concentration level.  Quiz questions will be relatively easy to answer if you have paid complete attention but difficult if you have not. 

To confirm that you have actually watched the video, each quiz has some questions about the video itself, such as colour of the presenters clothing or hair.  These are random and can be about anything in the video.  Please watch the video fully in order to be able to answer these questions correctly, this will save you time.

Do not attempt to do the quizzes without watching the videos, read and understand the course vocabulary list before attempting the course.

While taking the quiz, it may be a good idea to open the video in a separate window so you can navigate through the video to help you answer the questions.   You can jump through the video using the left and right arrow keys while it is playing.
