Hi

I have been through and done one of the courses. How do I update "my organiser" to show I completed it? i did all the lessons and took all the tests.

It's supposed to show that you've done them when the course is completed. You can't actually set it yourself.

Wotz, what browser are you using to access online learning? I wasn't able to "complete" any lessons using IE Opera 6.5. I had to fire up IE6 in order for it to work.

I'm using IE6. Should it show as completed when I do the final test?

You need to place a tick in the box where it says "I have finished this assignment" (or similar wording). This should activate a new window which take you back to your organiser (I think). You should then see a completed date/time beside that course. You will also need to complete any quiz attached for that assignment as well. It will then also a finished date/time beside that course.

Complete the course? By reading all the lessons and doing the quizzes I suppose. I can't get in to those lessons without cookies enabled so I guess they track you with them and know when you've at least visited all the lessons in a course. Once you've done that they're supposed to list in your organiser that the course has been completed.

I did mine a few months ago and my organiser lists the courses I've completed.

That seems a bit odd Jen....... I want to stick with IE5.5 - hate IE6

Baldy, why bother starting it. I can forward you some emails offering a diploma in any subject you wish :D

Otherwise, no.

>> Do I get a diploma when I finish?

No, but I'll make one for you if you want. :D

>> I want to stick with IE5.5 - hate IE6

I've got that too and it worked fine. Jen's got one of those strange browsers that aren't mainstream and that only 6% of the PC population use.... :p

My browser has suddenly become stranger .... IE Opera is now called Avant Browser :O I have just discovered a few minutes ago!

It is actually a hybrid of IE and Opera. I love it! Go on, give it a go (http://www.avantbrowser.com/)! (except perhaps not on HP learing centres site)

Crazy Browser (http://www.crazybrowser.com) is way better than IE Opera.

But Phoenix is the best of them at the moment.
