(gentle music) -: Welcome back. I'm glad that you're still here and you're moving forward in the course. In this lecture, I wanna walk through the entire course so I can set some expectations of what you're going to experience and what you're going to learn as you work towards passing your CAPM. We'll begin by doing a big overview of how just to use the software and how to navigate and find different resources and ask questions. I think that's really important as we get into the material. So let's check that out now. What I'm gonna show you is from one of my older courses. So don't go looking for these lectures of the same content. I just mainly wanna show you how to get around inside of the player. So let's hop over there now. So this is the old player here and I've paused it. So if I hit play down here in the lower left. So this is play. And for our sake, I'm gonna turn this guy off. So this is an old video but I'm just showing you the mechanics. So here in the corner is to play or pause. If you want to hear something again or you wanna review, this little 15 with a circle, you can click that and it'll go back 15 seconds. Or you can click it and it'll go forward 15 seconds. If I'm really boring or really slow, which according to my wife that happens sometimes, you can speed up or slow down the speed. So that's what we're looking at here in the corner. So if you wanna listen to me twice as fast you can click the 2x there and it will play twice as fast. So maybe for a quick review, that's great. Or if you wanna slow it down and really soak it up. So you choose what's good for you. Of course, one times is normal speed. In the upper left hand corner is the name of the video you're watching. This is before you begin right now. There's the section and the lecture number when you hover your mouse up in the left hand corner. You click this little menu and all the way in the left, whatever that guy's called, and that will show you the entire course layout. So if there's a section that you want to jump to, you just click that and this will show the entire course outline, basically. And then you can click any section and then you can see the lectures underneath. Notice that some of these lectures have something in blue in this older course. Of course, it it'll be different in our course right now. This is all for just example sake. If you click any of these things in blue these are the resources. In the lectures I'll mention a resource, so you know that's how you're gonna go get the resource. So that's one of the places that resources are found. And so you can see them all at once over here. And if you scroll all the way to the bottom then you can see how much further you have to go. And then you can see how many have you completed of each section. When you want to put that guy away, just exit, and you're back into the course. Across the bottom here, some interesting things, we have browse Q&A. So if you have a question, you can go here and maybe other people have had the same question regarding that lecture. So this is where you interact with me. This is the best place to do it. Don't send me an email, don't track me down through Facebook. Send a message right here 'cause other people may have the same message or have already asked it. In addition, I have some teaching assistants that work with me 'cause I'm not available 24/7. And I know that this information is critical to you as you work to pass your exam. So I have other people that also help, besides me, answer questions in the course. So if you send me an email it's just gonna get backed up in my email queue. It's better to come here first in the browse Q&A and look to see if other people had the same question, and you can ask your question as well. And then they'll respond to you. They, being me, or the teaching assistants that I work with in this course. You can add a bookmark. If you wanna come back and watch it later, you need to pause. Although, I think most of these lectures you're gonna find are short enough, you can watch them in one setting. But you can add a bookmark and especially for review. You know, review this. And there you go. So later, when you want to come back to your bookmarks, it'll show up. Let me pause here, move this guy out of the way. It'll show up where the bookmark is. So it's a handy little feature you can hop back and forth and you can bookmark different things. So here's one, 134 people bookmarked this point. Let's see what other people have bookmarked. Oh, it's how to get, for that old course, the certificate. And I'll talk about that coming up. So very interesting. All right, then we have some captions here. They're not the best. I'm gonna say, they're improving. So maybe by the time you get through here they've improved, but we have some captions that you can turn on or off. There's the sound. We have some technical stuff here with these gears where if the quality doesn't look good or it's really buffering, sometimes if you reduce the quality, it'll improve. There's some keyboard shortcuts. This is also where you go to report a technical issue. You know, if you contact me or post in here that, hey, it's buffering too long, or I can't download this resource, or I can't log in... I guess you'd be logged in if you could get here. But something that's technical, I have no control over it. So it's best to report a technical issue here, okay? 'Cause if you email me that or post it, we're just gonna tell you you have to contact Udemy support. As much as I would love to help you and get in there and solve the problem, I have no control over it. Technical support. And actually Udemy support is very, very good. So be aware of that. And then if you want to go full screen and kind of hide everything, now it's like you're at the movies. So there you go. And then we can get out of there, you can just hit exit or escape rather to get out. You can also, in the upper right hand corner, go to the dashboard. So the dashboard is the whole course where you can hop to specific things. Also in the dashboard, you can go to Q&A, you can look at the different bookmarks. I give announcements periodically. And then there's some options here where you can check things out as far as the options. Back to the course content, the current section you're in, or you can look at all the sections. And then you can also see all resources. So this is where you can get all the resources to download that are included with this course. And this, of course, is where you can search the current section or all sections. You can search for a particular keyword or scroll through the outline. The next thing I want to talk about will be the entire course. So what are the specific things that I'm going to cover in this course? So, the course outline. We're gonna talk about preparing to pass the CAPM. That's our goal. How can you get the most from this course? So you wanna have a good ROI on your time and the money you've invested. So how can you get the most? We'll look at reviewing the CAPM exam domains. So I'm gonna show you exactly what you're going to be tested on and the different percentages of value of those different domains. We're going to talk about the PMBOK Guide 6th Edition and why this is important for you to have a copy of and use as a reference throughout the course in your study. We'll look at the project management foundations. These are just the good solid beginning to project management and just an understanding of some basic terms. So that may be a little bit of review for you, but it's good to understand this from PMI's perspective as you go in to pass the exam. We'll look at the related areas of project management. So we'll talk about programs, PMOs and projects, the stakeholders. Just how do these different things fit together in operations or with operations. We'll look at the project management components, the project environments, the role of the project manager, that's you. And then we'll get into the very specific exam domains beginning with chapter four in the PMBOK Guide 6th Edition. And that's implementing integration management, managing scope, managing our time or schedule, cost management, quality management, resource management, communications management, risk management, procurement, and stakeholder management. So those are the knowledge areas, and those are chapters four through 13 in the PMBOK Guide 6th Edition. So each one of those will be a section as we move through the course. And then we're going to talk about the PMI Code of Ethics. This is a document that you have to agree to abide by and you may have a few ethical questions sprinkled into your exam. And then I have a blitz for you, just kind of a big wrap up. The most important things that you must know. It's a really good thing to watch and review maybe the night before you go in to pass your exam. And then I'll give you a wrap up of the whole course and we'll say goodbye. And so that's what's in store for you in this course. Great job. Keep moving forward, you're making great progress. (gentle music)
