When you select a course from your Home page, or join a course from the Library, you’ll jump to the course path.
The course path includes everything you need to complete a course from start to finish. You can start taking a course by clicking on the “Start” button for the first section.
When you click "Start," you’ll jump into the first learning step of that lesson.
If you decide to leave a lesson before you’re completely finished, you’ll see a "Resume" button in the place of "Start."
Once you've completed a lesson, this button will be labeled "Review" so that you always have easy access to study-up on what you've already learned.
Stay on Schedule
Not all courses are on a schedule, but if you’re taking one that is, here are a few things to know about staying on track.
If there are due dates, you’ll be notified automatically by email when steps that you haven't yet completed are due .
However, you can plan ahead by tapping on the “Show steps” link under each lesson.
This expands the lesson to show each step and when it’s due:
Some steps may also have start dates. If a start date is set, you won’t be able to start that particular step until that day and time.
Steps are the building blocks of a course. Each step has something for you to read, watch, listen to, take, or do. It's important to hit the "Complete Step" button once you’re finished with a step:
This ensures that your progress is saved and that any points are counted as you move through a course.
Depending on the course, some steps have something for you to do before you can hit “Complete Step.” For example:
- A “Take” step requires you to answer all the questions before completing.
- A “Submit” step will usually ask you to write or upload a file before you complete it.
- A “To-do” step often has some special instructions (such as answering a discussion question).
Complete a course
Once you’ve completed a course, you’ll see a completion screen that looks something like this:
(Note: If the course is private, you won’t see the sharing options.)
Some courses have certificates of completion available to download and print. If the course you complete has a certificate, you can download it from screen.
Once you’ve completed your course, you can review it anytime by selecting it from your Home page and setting the view to "Completed":
When viewing a completed course, you'll notice that each lesson is marked with a "Review" button. This button allows you to retake each step in that lesson.
Or, you can expand a lesson to select an individual step to review. You can also "Reset" most steps in order to re-take them:
All your notes, assessment answers, and submissions remain in the course for you to see.
