Frequently Asked Questions

Why won’t the videos play for me?

If you are unable to view the CDP videos, the issue may be with the Internet filters set up by your school in order to comply with the Child Internet Protection Act. The Medal of Honor site uses Vimeo video sharing service to host videos, which like YouTube is often blocked by schools. In order to view the videos, your system administrator can allow viewing of educational videos on Vimeo. Or, your system administrator can “whitelist” the specific videos on Vimeo featured on the Medal of Honor site. This will allow these videos, and only these videos, to play.

Are there trainings on how to teach the program?

Yes, there are training sessions held all over the country. To find a training coming up in your area, check out our Events Calendar. To speak with someone about scheduling a training in your area, contact Noel Wall (nwall@themedalofhonor.com). Also, you can view a series of free monthly webinars.
