How to Start a Course/Learning Path
Here we will cover how to start a course/learning path.
1. How to Locate and Start Training
“To Do” will show how many training items the learner has.
- Check under Not Started or In Progress
- Click on the course/learning path
- Course/Learning Path will open
- Click on “Start this course/learning path” or “Continue this Course/Learning Path” button
- Another option is to click on the module directly
2. In Course Navigation
Once in a course, learner can use navigate via the action buttons within the course.
The majority of the training is in text format, and each lesson can be seen on the left-side navigation. Learners can keep track of progress via the checks.
Some courses are simple videos, navigation is found within the video control menu, typically towards the bottom of the video.
Pro Tip: When training is a video make sure to let the video play until the very end, if stopped even 1 second too soon, it may not register as completed.
Another type of course is an embedded PowerPoint, use the ◀ and ▶ arrows to move through the slides.
To exit the course itself or to move onto the next module, learner can use the navigation button on the top-right.
3. Track Progress
Learners can track their progress by the green checks and percentage at the top right.
- For courses, the % shows progress for the course. This means that as a course module is completed, the % at the top right will progress.
- For learning paths, the % shows progress for the full learning path. This means that a course needs to be 100% completed in order for that % at the top right to progress.
