Start and Stop as Necessary!

If you start a lesson and have to quit because that little voice in the black box tells you to go somewhere, or for any other reason, you can pick up where you left off when you get back to the station or the next time you login from a different location, like when you are posted on your next stand-by and have some extra time to kill.
