Use the "Complete" button to help you organize your progress!

I wanna give you a couple tips on how to make the course participation in our platform more efficient for you, easier to work with. So first of all, you'll notice that on the top right, it will say last actives. What this means is that you haven't yet marked this lesson as complete. That's why it says that. And also, when you scroll down, when you go into our course home page, you'll notice that the ones you have marked as complete will show like this and the ones you have not marked as complete show like this with a play button.
So even if you've already watched the video in that lesson, let's say I've already watched the video in this lesson. If I didn't mark it as complete, let me show you what I mean. So let me go in here. Alright? And then I let's say I've watched the video and what done whatever.
Even if I haven't finished the homework, I think it's more efficient as a way of getting through a course to market as complete if I have if I know what this lesson is about. Okay. Let me show you what happens. Let me mark this complete. Okay.
So now what happens is you'll see that there's a check mark on the left hand side. This is kind of like a journey. The ones that are not yet marked as complete are are an open circle and the ones that are are a check mark. And so if I go back to the course home page now, you'll see that this has been marked as complete. I've watched it.
But it still tells me that the last active was this 1 at the top because I haven't marked. That's the earliest lesson that I have not yet marked this complete. So you see how it is more efficient. So you might some people might say, well, George, I haven't done the homework. That's why I haven't marked something as complete.
I recommend that you kind of track it on, you know, if you if you want to do the homework, you should probably write an entity to do list to do a particular homework. But when you are watching through the course, that the thing is sometimes I add new lessons within existing modules. And so it might be tricky for you to remember which are the new ones I added. Right? So I might add another 1 to the publishing mindset.
And if you if you think you've watched them all, but you didn't mark us complete, you won't know which which of the new ones I've added. I'll try to let you know in the course emails if I've added 1 to a previous module, but just for your sense of organization, it's probably better, like I said, to mark more things as complete. Like I said, you go to the lesson. If there's a video here, you watch it. If not, you you know, understood what it's about.
Mark is complete. That way, it's gonna be more efficient for you, I think. So I hope this is helpful and let me know if you have any questions below. Thanks a lot. And now, of course, you can mark this 1 as complete.

The info regarding the fact that you sometimes add new lessons into existing modules was good to know in determining to mark something as "complete".

@George KaoΒ I received the welcome emails you sent, shortly after I posted the question about it here (I should have waited a bit longer before asking!). Thanks! I'm not sure if this is where I originally posted that question, because I deleted it after receiving the email. But this is where the link leads me, to let you know. Thanks again... I'm still getting used to how this all works.

This was really helpful.Β  It seems like common sense, but I have list track of where I was in other online courses because I wanted to complete all the exercises before checking the box.Β  You are the first person who has ever made a point of highlighting the helpfulness of checking the box immediately.

@Toni GuthrieΒ thank you for saying that!Β  As a educator, I always aim to find a way to make the coursework more engaging for students, and the simple act of clicking 'complete' after looking at a lesson, even without doing the homework yet, I think is truly helpful for continued engagement.
