If the changes aren’t self-explanatory, you can watch a video explaining them that is linked on most pages, and is also at If you have comments and suggestions about the new look, please let me know.

One brief comment about the new look is that it only tracks the videos that you have seen since the change (i.e., since 2/15). This means that videos that you viewed earlier will say that they are unviewed. The easiest solution to this is to not care very much, but if you want to have the check marks and an accurate count of the fraction of the lessons that you have viewed, then you can trick the system by opening the videos and close the window as soon as the video starts.
