How to Work with Courses Before Taking Them

In the "Courses" tab, you will see the "My Courses" section with the courses that are in progress or planned. Below, there is the "Completed Courses" section with the courses you have already taken.

Viewing Progress

If a course is marked as "Course Started," it means that it has been started by its instructor, and you can take it. If you open a course at least once, you will see your progress.

Getting Started

To start a course you registered for or were invited to, click Enroll.

Then, click the course to open it, and start studying.

Viewing a Course Program

When you open a course, its program will be on the left, including its sections, lessons, and tests. Click the first lesson to start studying.

How to Work With Courses When Taking Them

To proceed to the next lesson in linear order, mark the previous lesson as completed, pass the test, and turn in the assignment. With non-linear courses, marking lessons as completed is not necessary because you have access to all lessons in a course or section.

Viewing a Lesson

In each lesson, you can find materials of different formats, but these are mostly video lectures. There can be other useful downloadable materials, for example, guides, books, and presentations. To download them to your device, click a file.

Taking a Lesson

After watching all the lectures and viewing all the materials, mark a lesson as completed. To do this, select the "Mark as completed" checkbox, and rate it — 5 stars mean you liked everything, and 1 star means you did not like anything. Сlick the arrow — you will go to the next step.

This way, you can view your progress on the course page and receive a certificate of completion. Your instructor can also limit access to the next lesson if the previous one is not marked as completed.

Passing a Test

During your studies, you may need to take tests if course creators choose to add them. Your scores determine if you will complete the course and earn your certificate.

To answer test questions, select an answer, and click Next.

Click Repeat to take the test again if it is allowed. You can also rate this test on a 5-point scale.

Doing Homework

Below an assignment, there is a field where you can type in your answer and attach a file. Click Send once you upload your completed assignment.

An assignment is considered successfully completed if an instructor accepts it. Such an assignment will have the "Accepted" status and the instructor's comments.

After completing a course, students receive certificates by email if course creators choose to grant them.

Students’ Questions and Instructors’ Answers

Students can ask questions during their course registration and each lesson.

To see an answer, click a question. Here, you can ask an additional question or reply to your instructor. Click the arrow on the right to submit your reply.

How to Rate a Course

Once you complete a course, rate it, and submit your review. This way, an instructor will be able to receive your feedback and improve their course.

You can also rate the test and the lesson separately during its passage.
