How do I clear my browser's cache?

Your browser stores any files that it views locally on your computer so that it doesn't need to retrieve them from the web every time you want to access it. That includes the videos that Beaducation serves up. Occasionally, a video will be cached incorrectly on your system, and the best way to fix it is to clear your cache, and download another "fresh" version from our server. Here's how you clear your cache.
