English [Auto] Welcome back, I'm glad that you're still here and you're moving forward in the courts in this lecture, I want to walk through the entire court 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 cap. 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 going to show you is from one of my older courses, so don't go looking for these lectures of the same content. I just mainly want to 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 paused it, so if I hit play down here, the lower left. So this is play. And for our sake and want to turn this guy off. So this is an old video, but I'll just show you the mechanics. So here the corner is the player. Pause. If you want to hear something again or you want to review this little 15 with a circle, you can click that. 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 want to listen to me twice as fast, you can click the two X there and it will play twice as fast. So maybe for a quick review. That's great. Or if you want to slow it down and really soak it up so you choose what's good for you. Of course, one time 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 in the election lecture number. When you hover your mouse up in the left hand corner, you click this little menu and all the way to the left, whatever that guy is called. And that will show you the entire. Of 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. So in this older course, of course, it'll be different in our course. Right now, this is old, for just example. Say, 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 going to go get the resource. So that's where the one of the places that resources are found. And so you can see them all at once over here. 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. You're back into the courts across the bottom here, some interesting things we have Brouse 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 because other people may have the same message or have already asked it. In addition, I have some teaching assistants that work with me because 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 going to get backed up in my email queue. It's better to come here first in the Brouse Q&A and look to see if other people have 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 want to come back and watch it later. Deposit, although I think most of these lectures are going to find our 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 with 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. One hundred and thirty four people bookmark this point. Let's see what other people have bookmarked. Oh, it's how to get for that old course the certificate. Then 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 going to 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. With the quality isn'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, or I guess you'd be logging if you could get here. But something that's technical, I have no control over it. So it's best to give a report, a technical issue here. OK, because if you e-mail me that or post it, we're just going to have to contact you to 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 Uttam 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 have 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 see 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 of the sections and then you can also see all resources. So this is where you can see get all the resources that down low that are included with this cause. And this, of course, is where you can search what 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 going to talk about preparing to pass the CAPM. That's our goal. How can you get the most from this course? You want to have a good ahli on your time in the money you've invested, so how can you get the most? We'll look at reviewing the CAPM exam domains. I'm going to 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 Pinback Guide 6th Edition and why this is important for you to have a copy of. It uses a reference throughout the course in your study. We'll look at the Project Management Foundation's. This is just the good, solid beginning to project management and just an understanding of some basic terms that may be a little bit of review for you, but it's good to understand this from my 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 Pinback 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 Pinback Guide 6th Edition. So each one of those will be a section as we move through the courts. 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 the scores. Great job. Keep moving forward. You're making great progress.
