What to Expect: Course Overview

This course is designed to teach you additional features and functionality building from where we left off in TimeXtender - Optimization. While it's not a requirement, we do recommend you complete TimeXtender Optimization first, because everything taught in this course uses the previously built project.

You are free to browse through the videos for help on using specific features. However, you will get the most value from the material if you follow along through the sections in series at your own pace.

Course Content

This course includes about 20 lectures consisting of reading & concepts, hands-on exercises, and quizzes. This course consists of roughly 4 hours of training content depending on your familiarity with the topic.

Approach

This online course is organized into different lecture types to help you be successful.

Quick Start lectures are designed to provide a high level overview of a feature, process, or concept. The intent is to give you concise, important information which you may return to, as needed, even after you've completed a training.

These lectures include three (3) sections, Key Points, Key Steps, and Understanding. Additionally, each quick start contains links to the Knowledge Base articles, related documentation, and related TimeXtender lectures.

  • Key Points: must know information, "gotchas" or tips/tricks, and other useful information to save you time in the long run
  • Key Steps: concise, high-level steps of the most common applications of a Quick Start topic, for your knowledge and understanding, with links to the Knowledge Base for more detailed instructions
  • Understanding: a deeper look at the concepts and nuances of a Quick Start topic, with links to the Knowledge Base for further reading

You are expected to learn the content in the Quick Start topics; you aren't expected to complete the steps in the Quick Start, in order to complete the training. When there is a topic that you'll need to follow along with, to complete the training course, there will be an exercise following the quick start, with detailed instructions and video.

Foundation lectures discuss key concepts in the form of text, images, and video.

Exercise lectures will ask you to complete a series of steps in TimeXtender. If you have difficulty, examples are provided, however, for the best learning experience we highly encourage you to attempt the exercise prior to watching the solution.

Quiz lectures will test your knowledge of important topics ensuring you remember the key concepts needed to be successful.
