Tips and tricks to get the most out of the course

We know that our learners are accessing this course from around the world, often with minimal internet connection. We also know that most of our learners learned multiple languages before learning English. As a result, we want to highlight the following:

  • Navigation. When navigating you may use the left side menu or the orange navigation buttons that appear below the content. If you want to track your progress, you can click the green “mark as complete” in the top right for each topic.
  • Captioning. Most videos already have subtitles. For those that don’t, you can turn on captions by clicking the “CC” button on the bottom right of the videos or the tool icon in the same location.
  • Engage! You are more likely to retain your learning if you apply it to what you are experiencing and connect with others. Engaging on the discussion board is a concrete way to deepen your learning.
