English [Auto] You're welcome back. I'm glad that you're still here and you're moving forward in the course in this lecture. I want to walk through the entire course so I can set some expectations of what you're going to experience or what you're going to learn as you work towards passing your c.a.p. 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 really 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 in the lower left. So this is play and for our sake and when to turn this game 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 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 want to listen to me twice as fast you can click the two acts 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 a 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 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 he can click any section and then you can see the lecturer's underneath. Notice that some of these lectures have something in Baloo. So in this older of course of course it will 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 that 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 and screw all the way to the bottom and 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 courts across the bottom here are some interesting things. We have Brough's 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 e-mail 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 work to pasture Exeunt. So have other people that also help besides me answer questions in the course. So if you send me an e-mail it's just going to 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 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 the deposit. Although I think most of these lectures are going to 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 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 134 people bookmark 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 of 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 worth the quality isn't look good or it's really buffering. Sometimes if you reduce the quality it will improve. There's some keyboard shortcuts. This is also where you go to report a technical issue. You know 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 should be logged in. 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 me support as much as I would love to help you and get in there solve the problem. I have no control over technical support. And actually you to me support is very very good. So beware of that. And then if you want to go full screen and kind of hide everything now like you're at the movies. So there you go. And if 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. We 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 look at all the sections and then you can also see all resources. So this is where you can see get all the resources that downlow that are included with this course. And this of course is where you can search what the current section or all sections and you can search for a particular keyword or scroll to 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 the past the c.a.p And that's our goal. How can you get the most from the course you want to have a good or a y on your time in the money you've invested so how can you get the most we'll look at reviewing the c.a.p and exam domain's 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 6 edition and why this is important for you to have a copy in use as a reference throughout the course in your study. We'll look at the Project Management foundations. This is just a 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 into past exam. We'll look at the related areas of project management. So we'll talk about programs Moze and projects stakeholders just how are 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 4 in the Pinback guide 6 the dish. And that's implementing integration management managing SCO 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 six additions. So each one of those will be a section as we move through the courts whether 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 into 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.
