Why can't I access the next section after completing a WISE-MD module section?

When you complete a module section, your browser instructs the WISE-MD server to unlock the next section. Once unlocked, a section becomes permanently available to you should you want to review it. If the browser's "unlock" request is not received by the server, the next section will remain locked. The following steps may help resolve this issue.

  • Confirm the unlock request to load the next section.  Once the secion is loaded, you can begin watching it or exit the module and log out.  The section will be unlocked and available the next time you log in to WISE-MD. 
  • After completing a video, do not leave your WISE-MD session idle for an extended period of time before clicking on the "Next Section" button. If the WISE-MD server has not received a request from your browser for some time, it assumes that you closed your browser without logging off and terminates your user session. If you click on a link in WISE-MD after your session has expired, the action will be blocked and you will be asked to login again.
  • If the Next Section link in the navigation bar cannot be clicked after completing a section, go back to the Module List and try entering the module again. On rare occasions, a browser will fail to refresh the navigation link when a section is completed. Reentering the page will force a refresh.
  • If the previous steps do not resolve the problem, please fill out the Ask MedU Support form describing your problem. Include the module and section name in your message. If a review of our server logs indicates a technical issue and demonstrates that a section was completed, we will manually unlock the next section for you.

Why does a downloaded video stop playing before reaching the end?

Although all of WISE-MD's videos are compressed, the video files that appear in module sections are still very large. To enable faster access to the video content, WISE-MD uses progressive downloading--you can begin watching a video segment before the entire video has been downloaded. Slow or poor quality connections, however, can periodically result in the receipt and storage of partial video files by your computer.

The following steps may help resolve the issue:

  •  Try to reload the module section using your browsers "reload page" function. In many browsers, pressing Shift + Reload forces the browser to ignore any locally cached content and reload the data from the server. Check your browser documentation for further information
  •  If that does not resolve the problem, it is likely that the incomplete video file is still being cached. To discard the incomplete copy, try clearing your browser's file cache. In Firefox, you can clear your cache by accessing the "Clear private data" option in the "Tools" menu, selecting "Cache," and then clicking on the "Clear Private Data" button. Once you have cleared the cache, try reloading the page.
  •  If you are still having problems, fill out the Ask MedU Support Form. Include the module and section name in your message. We can "refresh" the data on our server to force your computer to download the video again.

Why are videos downloading slowly?

Slow downloads are often related to high traffic on your local network or Internet service provider, multiple local applications accessing the Internet, or another application on your computer using system resources. The following steps may help isolate the issue:

  • Pause a playing video for a minute or so to see if that allows it to load completely. Then resume the video playback to determine if the issue is resolved.
  • Close other running applications that may access the Internet. Applications that download email, audio, video or other content from the Internet may periodically require network resources, limiting the resources available to the WISE-MD video download.
