Check out the new SVS website!😊
In case you haven't noticed, we have a new website!
We are super excited to roll out our new website, we hope you like it! It's got all kinds of bells and whistles and cool features y'all have been asking for
If you don't see it yet, don't worry, it'll be rolling out for all our subscribers over the next several days. You don't have to go anywhere different, the web address is the same, just go to our website like you normally would.
Please pardon our dust
We are still working on updating the site, so if you come across anything broken or weird, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your new subscriber account!
If you have an active subscription, you should already have a new subscriber account on the new website. The best way to get access to your subscriber account is to just reset your password (the old one won't work). Or, if you prefer, you can email email@example.com to get your own temporary password.
To find your account, simply click on the Video Library link in the menu at the top of the website. Then click on the Sign In link, and follow the Forgot Password? prompt.
If you run into any troubles at all, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will get it sorted out.
Check it out and let us know what you think!
So excited to share our new vision for SVS with you guys! The website has been so much work but it looks great. We are still ironing stuff out, but overall it's a big step forward for us and what we will be offering. : )
Some notes about the site:
- You can rate and review classes now.
- There is a store to buy books and other things (we are still populating that link so more coming for sure)
- There is a "live classes" section where you can see what is available and enroll
Check it out when you get a chance. We would love your feedback! : )

This upgrade looks awesome guys! I am already enjoying the course tracking and how it remembers my spot in the video, that used to bug me when I had to remember where I left off in a video or chapter especially if it was a couple days since I was on the site.
Looking forward to all the new content you guys keep creating!

Hope this doesn't sound negative but the new site seems less convenient... it takes more clicks than before to navigate around. Also, it doesn't recognize the subscription I've had for a couple of years. It doesn't recognize my email. Then when I try to resubscribe it says my email is already taken. I've contacted support and they are looking into it.
It may seem like it takes more clicks, but it's just because we have a lot more information than before. To get to your classes it should be as simple as clicking on "Video Library" and that is only one click.
In regards to your account, you should have received an email yesterday giving you a password. If your account was active, then your info was already transferred to the new site which is why the email is already taken. You don't need to re-subscribe. Just login using your email and the password that was sent and you should be all set.
If not, Aaron will be in touch with you shortly to get it worked out.
Let me know if you have any other questions at all. : )
I agree with Chris that it takes more clicks to navigate. When on the student dashboard no more than six courses are shown at a time with no option to load more per page. So finding a new course means clicking through the pages and looking at six courses at a time until I find the one I want. It's not a deal breaker but that aspect is a little more inconvenient than the previous format. Hopefully this is one of the little wrinkles that can be ironed out. Overall the new design looks fantastic.

@Jon-Anderson , I just click on "View More Courses" under "Your Student Dashboard" and all SVS courses appear on two pages with a search bar for quickly finding a course (and of course clicking "Video Library" works too!)
It's taking me a little while to "unlearn" my navigation from the old site, so I think I'm creating more clicks for myself
@Jon-Anderson I'd agree that a "continuous/infinite scrolling" function to the course display might be more convenient rather than the pagination function.
The downside is having to keep scrolling to find something rather than jumping to a page it is on (or was on when new classes are added). But I suppose that is where a filtering system comes into play.
Would be nice to have search/filter on the "My Dashboard". Also would be nice to have the ability to flag my favorites in order to quickly find and re-watch those. I'm sure an endless list of UI/UX requests could be made though...
@Lee-White a very minor thing I noticed is that while it is great that this is a responsive design, the category filter dropdown and search bar (as well as the left/right courses listed) do not have a left/right margin/padding on them, so at smaller browser window sizes, they butt up right next to the edge of the browser window, rather than being inset some (e.g. 25px space between left edge and start of the content regardless of the browser window size). Should be a very easy css fix. Again, no big deal, but this might make the design be a little more breathable at smaller browser sizes. (I'm on Chrome Version 58.0.3029.81 on Mac OS)
Thanks guys, we appreciate the feedback. The classes are being changed to be all on one page. So no more having to click to see more. Right now it's divided onto two pages. We are also updating the keywords for the search option so that should work better as we get that info entered.
@Lee-White Hey Lee how do we find the classes that we already own, too...vs the class library?
@MissMarck Thanks! I didn't realize I could click on that. It does make it easier being able to scroll two pages than clicking through multiple pages with few options and I think it's also better for the long term than continuously scrolling one page.
@Lee-White In my short time here I can already tell you and the other admins pour a lot of time and effort into this and I wanted to say thank you for that and also the willingness to hear the students feedback. I'm sure that whatever design you guys settle on will be the best.
