MEC is available to download for viewing offline too!

ABOUT MEC OFFLINE

We know that many people who want to use MEC have serious constraints in internet access and bandwidth. As a result, we created the MEC Offline Viewer. With MEC Offline, you can get almost the same experience of participating in MEC as you do online, but without having to be connected to the internet.

With MEC Offline you can:

·       Join any MEC courses that are available on the Web

·       View MEC video content and any supplemental material you may need (power point slides, pdfs, etc.)

·       Sync on the Web to get the latest content (so you’ll always be up to date)


The only things you CAN’T do with MEC Offline are:

·       Take quizzes; you have to sign into MEC to take any quizzes or knowledge checks. This is because in order to give you credit for taking the quizzes, we have to know who you are.

·       Participate in forum Q&As associated with the course and each video.


WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR MEC TO BE VIEWED OFFLINE?

We have two options:

·       Install MEC offline phone app in Android phones.

·       Download MEC offline app for Windows and use it in your laptop/desktop.


DOES ALL THE CONTENT COME WITH MEC OFFLINE?

This depends on the package that you have. At base, the MEC Offline Viewer is a small application that lets you decide what content you want to download. Then you download relevant content that you want to view while you’re online (e.g., while on WiFi at school), and then watch it at your leisure. In some cases, much of the video content may be already included, and you’ll only need to synchronize with the Web to get the latest bits. In any case you can tell what content is ready to view and what still needs to be downloaded on the main course page.


HOW DO I GET THE ANDROID APP FOR MEC?

Please download it from the Google Play Store: MEC for Android.


HOW DO I GET THE WINDOWS OFFLINE APP FOR MY LAPTOP/DESKTOP?

You can download the MEC offline for Windows - base version from here. The packaged version can be downloaded from here. Extract the contents of the folder, and run the Mec.exe.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE WINDOWS OFFLINE APP?

It can run on Windows 7 or higher and requires .Net 4.5. If .Net 4.5 is not installed, the app will take the user to the install location.


HOW DOES MEC OFFLINE FOR WINDOWS WORK?

When you launch MEC Offline, we start a server on your local machine that mimics our MEC servers in the cloud. The MEC Offline Server lets us create an experience that mirrors the experience you get online, but you can view content offline. When you exit the MEC Offline Server, you will no longer be able to view offline content.
