IMPORTANT -- IMPORTANT  - Apple Computer users   If you are creating your videos and then linking the video to the button on your document on your apple computer.   YOU cannot save the document in PDF format, it will not work.  Please place the link on the button and email me your lesson with the link attached to the button in the word document.  I will then save the document in PDF format for you and send it back.  Apple computers will not allow you to do this!  I am more than happy to do this for you.
