Welcome... a few tips for navigating this course

Here are a few quick tips about how to navigate this course:

  • First, upload a profile photo and add a short bio through Settings. It makes it more fun to interact with everyone when we can see your face and know a little something about you. And don't forget to check that your local time zone is correct, so that lesson notices reach you at the correct time!
  • Live events in this course are shown in the Webinars menu at the top of the course page. You can join the live webinars by clicking on that menu link and then on the scheduled event.  If you aren't able to attend a live event, you can access the recording through that same link.
  • Each week you'll get access to a new lesson (shown in the Course Outline and by clicking the Lessons menu at the top of the course). Each lesson contains a series of activities to complete and check-off (these activities are represented by the dots underneath the lesson title, in the top left of your screen).
  • Please bookmark in your browser. Although you'll receive course emails with a link to bring you back here, you can also simply come to to access your account's Learning Library and this course.
  • You can review and change the email notifications you receive for your courses by clicking the small "cog" (settings) icon at the top right side of the course page.
  • To complete an activity, click the "complete this activity" button at the upper right. 

→   Try that now by marking this activity as complete (in the upper right-hand corner) once you're done reading!
