Bulk downloads of videos _OR_ mark lesson as done/not done

Hello!

Is there a way to download all videos of a course in one step (a group of videos like the courses are grouped in sections would also be ok)?

Reason: If I want to go through a course with bad connection or in another country where I have limited data, I want to download all the course in advance. But for that, it seems that I have to click every step of the course and download the videos. -> The worst thing is not even that I have to click through all the course-steps and download the video, but when doing so, it does mark all the steps as "done"...

So another solution would be, to be able to manually mark individual steps/videos as done/not done.

P.S.: I have a "Pro Plan"

Hi there! You can download an entire stage's videos in bulk (e.g. How to Make a Website). Simply scroll down a bit and on the right you'll see "Download Vidoes" with a link to an iTunes feed. You'll need to have an updated version of iTunes to accomplish this. If you need any other help, you can ask here or send Support a request at help@teamtreehouse.com

Ok. Thanks for your quick answer!

Is it planned to make this available without needing iTunes? I guess it is a hassle under Linux (and even on windows it requires a pretty big install, that clutters the system with updates, ...).

I don't see a problem if stays like this in the near future, but long term it would be nice to have other solutions (or is there a very good reason for it?). Especially since it is advertised as a feature in the PRO-plan (and no ones would guess that a feature like downloading an entire course would be a hassle on linux).

But thanks. I am still a big big fan of Treehouse (making the download just more needed/important :)
