I've signed up for some online courses in a computer major, and they've been linking to a site called Tegrity for a bunch of the videos for the online courses. (It's like, Big Brother educational Youtube...?)
I've probed and probed, and while I can download some of the media, I can't actually get the Tegrity videos to play (within the brower, as they want it to) on Linux.
Although I'm not too familiar with the software, something I read on it implies that the teachers would know whether I'd been watching it [note: via THEIR Windows-and-Mac only!] method. In which case they'd think I'm a bad student, even though I've been trying to download it and watch it (and I have managed to download at least some of the mp3 files, which I've listened to- although they have no record of that.)
I *can* dual-boot into Windows- and I've done so for this purpose at times- but I hate using it and most of my work is on the Ubuntu half of my "school" laptop, so I'd basically have to reboot between watching the classes and actually doing the work. (And God help if I had to do some work WHILE watching a class video for reference............)
Anyway, sniveling complaints aside, IS there some way to run Tegrity on Linux? I've found ways to do literally everything else I've needed to for these courses, but this has me stumped. I've wasted so much time trying to find workarounds that it's actually affecting my grades. I can't find anything on Tegrity + Linux online so far (is it too niche? ) but I figured that some of you have surely taken online courses, and perhaps someone's found a workaround...? A little help here? (Please nothing involving a virtual machine!! There are a few reasons why I can't use that.)
Forgive me for posting this at 3AM, but this is when I reached the breaking point of trying to figure this out on my own.
