ASSE virtual events are designed to be viewed on most standard laptops and desktops. Many of our videos and on-demand products may also be viewed on tablets and mobile devices.

If you are viewing a live webcast, click here to test your system.

If you are signing up for a video or on-demand presentation, we suggest that you truly test your system by first registering for one of ASSE's free videos. A list of videos that are free to members can be found here.

If content isn't playing, you can try a couple of things. First, if you're viewing this at work, please check with your IT staff. Oftentimes, IT departments will "throttle" videos so that they play slowly or won't play at all. Usually, when they see that the video is being used for professional development, they can ease up on the security settings and let the video play.

Secondly, if you have the ability to login and view the videos on a different browser (like Chrome, Safari or Firefox) give that a try. We tend to see a lot of people who have problems when using Internet Explorer.
