Cyber Chip recharge

Can anyone tell me what we are suppose to be watching/doing for the Cyber Chip “recharge?” Section in Scoutbook states “Each Scout will need to “recharge” the chip by going back to the Netsmartz Recharge area. This space will hold new information, news, and a place for the Scout to recommit to net safety and netiquette.” I’ve followed the Netsmartz link, but nothing on the website page states “recharge area,” so I don’t know what my Scouts need to watch or do to “recharge.”

If you go here:

Then go to the applicable requirements (grades 1-3 / grades 4-5), then you will see:

Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to go to Netsmartz and complete 2 new resources to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.

From there, the Scout can watch 2 new videos to recharge under “Videos”. Or the parent / den leader can choose other options from the “Resources” tab. (The previous recharge activity for all Cub Scout grade levels was to read an online book called “Delivery for Webster”.)

Try checking out this thread on another board here. We were discussing this same issue.
