How do you view both Workspaces and the teaching videos at the same time?
I trying to watch the teaching video and work in Workspaces at the same time. How do I view both components at once?

When I "launch workspace", it always opens in a new window.
So I just place the windows side-by-side and work along with the video.
Having two displays is a big help, or one of the extra-wide aspect monitors. You could still do it otherwise, but you might have to settle for narrow columns or fewer rows.

Hi Ben Smith
When I'm on my laptop, I typically open up two instances of my browser: one for the video and one for my workspace/text editor and I split the screen real estate between the two.
When I'm on my desktop, I keep my text editor on one monitor and the video on the other — my preferred way of studying/coding.

It helps to purchase a second monitor and connect. They are relatively cheap. I like to listen to the lesson first and take notes then follow with workplace.
