I can't find my course enrolment email, can you help?
Alot of email programs move these kinds of emails to the "junk email" folder, so it's a good idea to check your "spam" or "junk" email folder for the email with your user name and password. If you find the email in there you will need to move it to the "inbox" for the links to work (this is a security thing). You can either drag and drop the email or right click and choose "move to . . .” then select the ‘in box’. If you still cannot find your email please contact support so they can confirm that your email address is correct in the system and they can then resend it for you.
How do I log-out of my course but make sure that my answers have been saved so that I can restart when I am ready?
