What if I am enrolled in multiple courses?
You will have to choose a "default course" to login to. This can be changed in the settings. The most recent class should typically be listed at the bottom.
Are there seeking points on the videos?
Seek points will now display on the video playlist in addition to the seek point currently displayed in video player control.
Are the lessons streamable?

Do you need an active internet connection to login and view previously downloaded audio or video lectures?
No, you do not need an active internet connection to see downloaded videos. You will be able to access all downloaded videos and audio from your Media Library.
Are there limits to the number of lectures that can be downloaded at one time?
Yes. There is a maximum of 10 Audio lessons and 5 Video lessons that can be downloaded at one time. If you wish to view new lessons when this limit is reached, you will need to delete older lessons first.
It is possible to take quizzes through this app?
