Technical System Requirement

OUR VIDEOS DO WORK. Please read requirements below:

High Speed Internet Connection. The VSNEMS course was designed to utilize sophisticated and advanced technologies for the internet to bring rich, interactive and exciting learning online. The computer system you use to take the course must have a broadband connection (CABLE, DSL or T1 line with download rate of 300 kbps) to the internet in order to view the streaming video that is a large portion of the course. 

If a message at the bottom of the video player continuously displays "Connecting" and no video plays this is usually due to firewalls and filters in the institutions. Contact your IT department for assistance or view in another location outside of the institution. Another message display at the bottom of the video player "Buffering" and the video never plays is usually due to a too slow internet connection.

Speakers properly connected and volume adjusted are required for the audio portion of the video.

Course Differences based on when they were produced. Please read specific instructions below:

Video Viewing Information

  • Videos stream from YouTube. If a message at the bottom of the video player continuously displays "Connecting" and no video plays this is usually due to firewalls and filters in the institutions. Contact your IT department for assistance or view in another location outside of the institution. The Course Directory page, where each module is listed, will have a link called Video Addressess that list all the URL addresses for all the video segments streaming from You Tube for that module. If you give these to your IT department they may be able to unblock these particular videos via filtering software.
  • Flash Player may be required for some portions of the module. If you do not have a Flash Player installed on your computer refer to the instructions in the section at the bottom of this page under the tab "Adobe Flash Player Requirement."
    Note: Apple iPads and iPhones DO NOT allow Flash Player installations.
  • Most Browsers available today will display this course correctly. If experiencing issues in one browser please open the module in another browser.

Adobe Flash Player Requirement

A current Flash Player must also be installed on the computer you are using. Most computers today have the player already installed with the browser. If you use an institutional computer system or terminal, it is possible both streaming video and Flash Player technologies may be disabled, you then must contact your system administrator for assistance or use another computer.
