Keep Up With The BA Lingo With Our Glossary

The Business Analyst profession comes with a lot of jargon and technical terminology, but there’s no need to worry. You’ll pick it all up in time. To help speed that process up, we’ve created a very useful Glossary (and made it free online!) stocked full of commonly used terms, phrases, and concepts that you’ll need to know all about.

Naturally, the course walks from one lecture to the next, but you can use this section to understand what’s coming up next. Clicking on any of the lectures will automatically bring you to that lecture.

a. Percentage – shows progress made on the course. This, being visible, motivates you to keep going forward and complete the course. As you complete various lectures, it will automatically update the percent completed.

c. Lectures – Each section is broken down into lectures, listed in the gray sections. The lecture currently being watched is highlighted in green.

d. Lecture completion status – This shows if the lecture has been completed, is in progress, or has not been started:

Lecture completed

Lecture is in progress

Lecture not started

When a lecture has resources available, they will be displayed below the video player.

To download, simply click on the button for the file(s) you want to download to your device.
