Lesson Key Points

Depending on if a person is logged in or not, and who they are logged in as, and if they are a student of the course or not, the site will look slightly different.
Within the Instructor Menu, there are sub menu items only available to the instructor.
The Q&A tool (linked to the main menu) is the place for the instructor to post FAQs and communicate with students and prospective students.

Lesson Assignments

Assignment #1Write down at least 5 questions people might have about your course, and write the answers. You can use these to "seed" your FAQ.

(No need to comment, but do post any questions if you have them, as usual).

Lesson Quiz

This is a sample lesson or if you are a student you are not logged in. You can view the quiz, but you will not be able to submit your answers.

This lesson's quiz comprises 5 multiple choice questions. Choose the best answer. Achieving passing score of 80% will register this lesson as complete if you have also passed the manually-reviewed assignments. You can take the quiz as many times as you wish.
