Website Changes

February 17th, 2009

As you have probably noticed, we have added a few new features to the website. It now displays for you which lessons you have viewed and not viewed, which should make it easier to keep track of where you are. It will also show you what lessons have been added or updated. If the changes aren’t self-explanatory, you can watch a video explaining them that is linked on most pages, and is also at http://www.theinfiniteactuary.com/files/newvideo.wmv If you have comments and suggestions about the new look, please let me know or post comments in the blog.

One brief comment about the new look is that it only tracks the videos that you have seen since the change (i.e., since 2/15). This means that videos that you viewed earlier will say that they are unviewed. The easiest solution to this is to not care very much, but if you want to have the check marks and an accurate count of the fraction of the lessons that you have viewed, then you can trick the system by opening the videos and close the window as soon as the video starts.

    I think the new feature will be great, but I do not think it is working, at least not for me. The lessons that I viewed yesterday (2/16) are not indicated.

    Are you using Internet Explorer 6? If so they don’t work in that browser. Upgrade to IE7 or switch to Firefox.

    Maureen, try it now. It should work.
