New and Improved Video Viewing Experience


 

This Preview represents work that is not yet fully finalized. Specific functionality and appearance are subject to change as we progress through the Preview period.

 

New and Improved Video Viewing Experience

We are pleased to announce the Preview release of an improved Workshop Library on-demand video viewing experience. This updated experience addresses some of the more fundamental gaps in the way customers leverage their Workshop Library on-demand subscriptions. This includes the way they navigate between their courses and videos, and the video player experience itself.

This Preview is available to all current and new Workshop Library on-demand subscribers. Subscribers will retain access once this moves from Preview to final release.

Welcoming you is an integrated Learn More experience. This dialog will automatically appear the first time you sign in. Navigate through this experience to learn more about it or close it and jump right in.

Key changes:

  • Streamlined navigation.
    • The new filter area on left, with course tiles on right, allows for significantly easier navigation between courses and videos.

    • Count of courses allows you to know how many courses are available per category.
    • You can collapse/expand the filter area if you need more or less space for viewing the course tiles.
  • Course tiles.

Key changes:

    • View the list of available videos, per module, on the left.
    • Click the video you want to watch.
  • Bigger default video player.
    • We've heard your feedback and made the video player more of the Hero on this page by increasing its default size. You can still expand to full screen if you want an even larger player.
