When your Inspection Stick arrives.
Insert the USB stick into your computer’s USB port. You may need to wait a moment for your anti-virus scan to complete before you can access the device. Note some schools may employ a USB port blocking technology to protect the network from malware. It this is the case, you will need to ask your system administrator for assistance.
When you first open the stick in Windows Explorer or Apple Finder, a window will open and display a number of visible files and folders.
Double-click the Welcome(.html) or Index(.html) file to begin your Tour.
Your default web browser will automatically launch and the Welcome page (shown here) will appear.
Our inspection material is presented like a local website. An internet connection is not needed to view these materials.
What’s on the stick?
Your inspection stick contains:
- An introductory welcome letter
- 3 Videos including an introduction and detailed walk-through
- Sample lesson plan overviews
- 8 complete lessons; 1 selected from each year group (Foundation 1, 2 and Year 1 through 6) with each of the puzzles being represented over the entire sample set
- Free Jigsaw song, sung by children
- Other useful leaflets and information
During playback of videos, you can expand them to full screen using the on-screen controls that are overlaid in the video window, without losing your place in the web browser.
If for some reason your web-browser cannot play the embedded video content, you can play them manually outside your web browser as follows:
Navigate your way through the files and folders on the stick (folder ‘stick1.1’ if listed first) then into the ‘video’ folder. You will see all the videos in numerical order and should be able to play them all from there.
If you still have trouble, please first ask your I.T. department for assistance to ensure you have the required software installed on your computer to play H.264 encoded videos with AAC encoded sound. We have tested these videos with Microsoft Windows Media Player, Apple Quicktime and VLC player and all function perfectly.
If you have any questions regarding the sample materials, please call our team on the number(s) provided at the bottom of this page.
