    • I just checked and you have watched 6870 seconds of the RE32RCO3 course. Which is about 115 minutes of a two hour video. So you have about 5 minutes left. When you log back in the system will start where you left off. Just let it play until the end and it will bring up a window saying that you got credit.

    • Hey Nancy, I was happy to here that installing the Firefox Browser solved your problem. For everyone else s benefit I will describe your issue here.

      Nancy had “Internet Explorer 8” installed on her machine. We discoverer that their is a bug with “Internet Explorer 8” and earlier editions. We are looking into a fix for this.

      However we have a work around. You can upgrade “Internet Explorer” to version 9 or higher. Or you can install the Firefox Browser and this will allow you to watch the videos.

      Here is the download link for installing the Firefox Browser.

  11. Last night I finished my 3rdclass RE19rc08 Fair Housing. The video stopped at 04 seconds and would not move from that. Opening the program this morning it started me at 10minutes into the video, why?
    As I have limited time, why should I have to retake a class I have already sat through?
    Could you please call me so we can rectify this. My # 508-695-6503

    thank you for assisting

  16. hi
    same problems as above..started today, logging back in tonight to do the second class and it will not let me move on to the next class. I completed the fair housing course and it is starting me from the beginning again!
    please help me so I can use the free time I have to complete this education.

  17. I’m in the fair housing segment of my continuing ed and it speaks to clicking on quiz links and how it’s important to participate with the quizzes, but there are no links to click. Advice?

    Also, just secondarily, you can’t rewind or back track on these class segments, can you?

    • Nina some of the classes were recorded during a live webinar class. You do not have to click on anything or download anything. You just need to watch and listen. The board does not allow us to give you access to video controls until you finish the 2 hour class. Once you finish the class you can move through the videos. You have access to the videos for 2 months. You can watch them as many times as you would like. You only receive credit for watching them the first time.

  18. Your entire bookmarks visual presentation is playing so far behind your audio that’s it’s nearly useless. Really need to fix this so one can follow and potentially learn and be able to apply. With the current lack of synchronization it’s pretty painful and not very edifying. I would have liked to have been able to use this information.

    • Nina sorry your having issues with the videos. That may be a problem with the internet connection. Have you tried to logout and close your browser and then log back in?
