Have a question about the content? Try the forums!
So you're in a course and you have a question about your profile or how to make the Webinar work? Ask us in support.
But if you have a question about the course content or an assignment you might be better served asking that question in a forum. Why? Well first of all, someone may have already asked the question so it may be possible to find your answer right away. Also, forums are a place for both students and teachers to interact. So it's possible a student could chime in with an answer before an instructor even sees the question.
Where are the course forums located?
You must be logged in and subscribed to the courses to participate in the course forums. You can find the course forums by logging in and clicking on "courses" and then "course discussions."
Okay, I'm in the forums. What now?
Your first step should be to search the forums for any questions that have been asked that may be similar to your own question. Your answer may be waiting for you! To view any of the forum posts, just click on the title of the post.
I don't see a similar question. How do I post my own question?
Okay, brave soul. Now is the time to take the leap and post a question of your own. To get started, click on the box that says "Start a new topic..." and start typing a descriptive title for your question.
As you start typing, a "body" section will appear. Put the details of your question in the body.
And there's more! As you type your question you'll see a live "preview" of what your post will look like. This can be very helpful, especially as you add styles or upload images (such as images of charts).
Click "start a new topic" to... well, you know...
How Do I Get Fancy with my Post or Upload Images?
A couple quick tips for you: click on the small question mark next to the title for quick tips on styling, adding links, etc. Click on the small camera icon to upload a chart image.
