The USB drive provides the program in three formats:

  1. HTML Interactive Presentation:

    The HTML option is an interactive version of the video by module. This allows the CDs to present each module as a stand-alone presentation. Each module is followed by a series of questions to assess student comprehension. If students answer the question correctly the video will advance to the next question. If students answer incorrectly, the video will repeat the section relating to that question.

    The HTML version also includes the Video User’s Manual and all of its contents. These documents cannot be downloaded from the HTML version.

  2. Full Video

    This option is a continuous 35 minute version of the video.

  3. Video by Module

    Similar to the HTML, this option allows the CD to present separate modules of the video. However, this option does not include the interactive questions.

The USB drive also includes: Instructor Supplementary Materials

The materials included in this section of the USB drive mimic those included in the Instructor’s Resources disc from the DVD version described above. The pdf’s found in this section are downloadable.
