Streaming Video

Posted By Ryan W. Schniederjan, Tuesday, March 19, 2013

The power of the internet to deliver information has transformed our society.  Web video streaming has become one of the most effective means of delivering this information.   However, to do so has significant challenges, especially when you factor in the explosion of mobile devices and networks.  To accomplish this, we have partnered with a company on the cutting edge of video streaming.  Their platform is designed to make our video content delivery quick from production to end-user view-ability on any platform.

For many years, it has been the goal of the AAPA to deliver video CME opportunities to our members.  With the launch of our new website, we have accomplished this goal.  From our CME Store, you can gain access to our video streaming library.  There are options to have access to the entire conference lecture series or individual lectures.  Each video has an attached quiz that must be completed to gain your CME credit.  And even after you have completed the quiz, you can still access the video stream at any time.

So go check it out in our CME Store!

Clearing your Browsers Cache

Posted By Ryan W. Schniederjan, Monday, February 25, 2013
Updated: Saturday, February 23, 2013

Ever heard of browser cache? No! Browser cache (also called Temporary Internet Files) is the location where temporary internet files such as HTML pages and images are kept on your computer to reduce loading time. You web browser does not always refresh or replace the files in it's cache every time it loads a web page. So, if you find that you can not see all the content on a page, you might need to clear the cache manually so it will load the most available content. Also, to help keep you computer running at it's best, you should clear the browser cache from time to time.

Here is what to do. We recommend you do this in every browser you have installed, just to be safe.

MS Internet Explorer

In IE, go to the "Tools" menu (or the gear icon on the top right of the screen). Open "Internet Options". In the "General" tab, there is a section called "Browser History". In this section, click on the "Delete" button. This will bring up another window. At a minimum, UN-check "Preserve Favorites web data", and CHECK "Temporary Internet Files", "Cookies", and "History". The Click the "Delete" button at the bottom.

Apple Safari

Go to the "Settings" gear on the top-right side. Select "Preferences". In this new window, go to the "Privacy" tab. Click on the "Remove all website data". Then click on "Remove Data" at the bottom.

Mozilla Firefox

Go to the orange Firefox menu on the top-left. Select "Options". In this new window, go to the "Advanced" tab. Under this tab, there is a "Network" sub-tab. Under this, there is a "Cached Web Content" section. Click on the "Clear Now" button.

Google Chrome

Go to the Control Menu (three lines at the top-right). Click on "Settings". At the bottom of the page that opens, click on "Show Advanced Settings". In the "Privacy" section, click on "Clear Browsing Data". In the new window that opens, there is a drop-down labeled "Obliterate the following items from". Select at least "the last week". Now, at a minimum, CHECK "Clear Browsing History", "Empty Cache", "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data". Finally, click on the "Clear Browsing Data".
