My Video Lesson won't play what should I do?
1. Ad Blockers
Some ad blockers, virus and firewall protection software or other browser plugins that disable videos from automatically playing may prevent videos from displaying correctly or prevent them from playing at all. In addition, a poor internet connection may interfere with the ability to stream the video.
To determine the problem, if possible, verify that the video can play on another device such as a smartphone or another computer. If the video plays on another device then something on your device is possibly blocking the video.
Check your browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla etc.) for ad blockers. They often will display as a small icon at the top right of your browser window. The icon is very often, (but not always) red. It may show a hand, a checkmark or a stop sign indicating that it is stopping ads or a video play icon with a red background. You may have to temporarily disable one or more plugins for the video to play. This can usually be done by clicking on the icon and choosing “disable”.
2. Your web browser needs to be updated. In this case download the latest version of your web browser.
3. You may need to clear the cache of your web browser. You can find instructions on clearing the cache by searching for instructions using the search engine of your choice. (i.e. Google, Bing etc.)
4. Your internet connection may be experiencing issues.
To test your internet speed, see the “system requirements” section of this FAQ.

Self-motivation and self-discipline:
Success in online courses requires commitment and discipline. Because you will not be sitting in a classroom on a regular basis, you must be self-directed and conscientious about completing assignments. Good time management is an important factor in your success as an online student.
Willingness to contribute:
As a Nation-2-Nation online student, you should be willing to and comfortable with sharing your views in the Forum discussions.
Expectations for the course:
Nation-2-Nation is designed to offer fully automated Lesson Plans assessable to people at varying levels of English literacy. We are unable to offer Teacher support or interaction, as a result, we have made every effort to design the course in an easy to use and understand format with little, to no, writing required.
You should have a working knowledge of the following computer skills to be successful in an online environment:
The ability to use Internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome.
A basic understanding of navigating websites.
The ability to use email (and to create a new email address if necessary)
Knowing where to go for Technical Support for issues outside of Nation-2-Nation, i.e. computer, software or Internet problems.
Confidence in Online Learning:
Online courses are not for everyone. If you feel that face-to-face interaction is always needed for learning, you may not feel comfortable in the online classroom
Online learning requires your commitment. Committing yourself to complete your video session and the rest of the lesson plan in a timely manner is essential to the learning process.
Once you start…
Find a learning space that is free from distractions. You might consider your office, a public library, or a separate room at home.
Check each session to view your syllabus. The syllabus contains all the information you need to progress through a course, including the course description, objectives, course requirements, assignments, and testing, uses of media and technology, and contact information.
When reading the syllabus, familiarize yourself with the course design to see if you can be a successful learner in that specific content area.
Before your course begins, make sure you have a computer with adequate hard disk space, as well as an Internet connection.
Set aside sufficient time in your personal schedule to do the work of the course or you will be frustrated.
Set up and stick to a study schedule.
Set goals and deadlines for yourself.
Set interim (short-term) goals and deadlines for yourself.
Without reminders from other students and a classroom instructor, it is easy to fall behind. Procrastination may put you too far behind to successfully complete the course.
Identify a study time for yourself when you are fresh, attentive, and free of distraction. Think of the study time as "reserved time” and stick to it regularly. If you miss too many study times, you should change your schedule.
Stay in touch:
Log on to your course Web site often (preferably at least once a day) for e-mails, discussion topics, and school announcements. Find out who has commented on your postings and read the feedback of other students. If you do not log on to your course discussion group often, you will fall behind.
Your courses will have different forms of assignments. Make every effort to complete the additional assignments offered, memorize scriptures, work journal assignment, seek practical ministry opportunities, and study all the scriptural readings. Take notes while you are completing the readings, watching the videos.
Make sure that you are actively participating in the course. The student is required to post on the discussion. We recommend that students participate as much as they are able in the various lesson discussions available.
Initiate discussions whenever possible, always contribute your ideas and comments on the subject you are studying and read about those of your classmates. You can gain great insight from your classmates and they can learn from you as well. Seek Assistance:
If you find yourself in need of help with your lessons seek out a friend or acquaintance whom you think may be able to help you with understanding your course material or help you study for an exam.
Take your studies seriously and yield yourself to the work of God in you throughout the course sessions.
During the semester, re-read the course objectives and standards often to see how you are progressing with them. If you think you are falling behind, then adjust your study schedule accordingly.
Before you take a test/quiz, make sure you understand the information covered in the course assignments that will be the basis for a particular assessment. Review your results and learn from your mistakes.
Try to apply and use what you learn in your online course as you learn it, so that you will remember it more easily later. Attempt to make connections between what you learn and what you do or will do in your job. Real world application helps you internalize what you learn. Your classmates may also benefit from hearing about your real-world experiences.
Computer or Internet problems:
Because Nation-2-Nation Christian University is designed to be fully automated we are unable to provide a Help Desk for computer or Internet problems. It will greatly benefit the student to have someone in mind, a friend or relative, that could assist if they are experiencing computer related problems.
However, if there is a technical problem specific to the school website, such as a broken link, a study lesson that will not progress or similar problems directly related to the school website the student can submit a trouble ticket. The student may submit a ticket at Submit Problem Ticket on the site pages.
If English is not your first language, building your English language skills will be an important part of your education at Nation-2-Nation Christian University. To help assist those who need to improve their English speaking and reading skills we offer a link to The English Club . Get started by taking the English skill test provided in this link: Test Your English Level
