When you find a course you’d like to take, you can enroll yourself without any special permission—as long as the course is open for self-service enrollment.
Activities are the building blocks of courses, and each course can include any number or combination of required activities.
Many courses in the LMS include a Learning Modules activity, which involves a lesson that opens in a new window. Learning modules contain various topics, questions and interactive exercises.
Most learning modules include information exercises such as Tab, Slide and Accordion interactions. You must “click through” and view all info blocks before the system will allow you to move forward.
When you’re enrolled in a course with an Event activity, be sure to sign up for a specific event session (they’re often offered at various times and locations) in order to attend and get credit for the event. This applies for online seminars AND in-person trainings.
On your Calendar page, you can view upcoming events for each of your courses and export your calendar to an iCal file (which you can open in Outlook).
Quizzes (sometimes called Tests or Assessments) are used to evaluate your learning, and can include a variety of question types (true/false, matching, multiple choice, etc.). You may find them at the beginning of a course, to assess what you already know, or at the end of a course, to demonstrate what you’ve learned.
