Activity 2 – Emails and Notifications

You will regularly receive emails and notifications regarding your progress. Keep an eye on your emails and check your spam folder as well.

Activity 3 – Video Quality

If your video’s visual quality is not clear (blurred or out of focus) you need to adjust your video quality settings. On the video at the bottom, you will notice a “gear” icon. Select it and then select “quality“. Now you can increase or decrease the quality setting.

In the event you are not on an unlimited data plan, keep in mind the higher the quality the more internet data is used.

Should you encounter any other issues with the video please read YouTube’s systems requirements.

We recommend an internet speed of at least 5 Mbps. If your internet is slower you can reduce the video quality as suggested in the YouTube system requirements.

If you want to test your internet speed you can just search for “internet speed test” in your browser.


We will explore the Learner Dashboard in the next lesson.
