    For More Information



    There is a lag between 'slides.' What should I do?

    This is caused by an internet connection that is not quite fast enough or by heavy traffic on the web server. You can try later or use the download method to review the module "offline."

    I want to download the module and watch it offline. Where can I get the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC?

    Don't have a copy of Adobe Acrobat? Get a free copy of adobe acrobat Reader DC

    Do I need a Flash Player installed for the module?

    You will not require a flash player for the online version.
    You will require a Flash Player for the downloaded pdf version of the modules

    I downloaded the pdf module. I can't get it to work on my iPad.

    Unfortunately, the downloaded pdf requires flash. Since iPads do not support flash, you will need to view the downloaded file on a computer.
