Courses

This is the page that you will be met with after clicking the “Courses” tab in the navigation bar.

Courses are made up of modules and activities. Modules can be thought of as sections within courses, and activities can include quizzes, lectures, and readings within modules. Once you have navigated to a course you will be able to see the title of the course, a short description, the certificate that you will receive upon completing it (if applicable), and the number of modules.

Courses page

 

To access a course that you are enrolled in, click on the rectangular area labelled with your course’s name. You can also access the courses by hovering over the “Courses” tab in the navigation bar and clicking on the name there (as shown above). The “Start” button will let you jump directly into the content of the course, but it is recommended that you click on the course name first to see the course overview before doing so.

To view all available modules and activities, click on the name of any section within the course. You can click on any of the activities that are available to you to start that specific activity. Note that some activities require completion of previous activities, so some may not be clickable. To collapse this list, simply click on the name of the course again.
