    Is there a way to go back in the module or rewatch certain sections without listening to the whole module?

      Hi Seth!

      Let me answer this one (given it's more about the platform than Roderick's great course) :) Normally, with the "Video Bookmarks" option (yellow bookmarks), which you can add on each video at any time point, you'll be able to directly jump to the sections that you appreciate later on. The idea is for you to create your own "bookmarks" on the way.

      Does that answer your question? (Or work for you?)

      If not, let me know via PM and we'll organise a screen-sharing session.

          Hi Tim, thanks for your reply, but not sure that answers my question. I would like to be able to pause the module, especially during the excel calculations, go back 10-30 seconds to rewatch the module again. Right now I can only watch the individual module from start to finish without any control of being able to rewatch a specific section

            Hi Seth,

            Got it! The Course was uploaded using our Vimeo integration here, making it impossible to use our bookmarks feature (explained above). I'll see with Roderick if we can upload the videos onto our own player enabling you to bookmark specific points so you can go back and forth to places where you want to spend more time on.

            We'll keep you posted!

        Hello Roderick,
        By the end of video 20 of this course you mention that there is Project Finance Modeling course but i can't find it in this platform. Is it a work in progress or can I find it somewhere else?
