How does an online course work? 2017-07-30T20:21:41+00:00

Courses are divided into chapters. There is a quiz at the end of most chapters, covering the material reviewed in that chapter. Quizzes may be taken multiple times.

Courses consist of content pages and quizzes. To move forward in a course, simply click anywhere on the page once the cursor highlights from the arrow to a hand, or you may use the forward, back and rewind buttons at the bottom left of your screen.

The amount of time you spend on each page is added to your total time spent in this course. If you stay on a page longer than five minutes, you will be logged out due to inactivity. You may log back in at any time and continue from where you left off.

Who do I contact if I have a question about course material? 2017-07-30T20:21:49+00:00
