When you sign up for one of our online courses, you will receive an email with login instructions.
If you have signed up for an online course and have not yet received your log-in credentials, check your spam folder. If you still can’t find the email, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text me at 417-777-1609, and I will resend the email. If necessary, you might add me to your email address book so you will receive my emails without problems. You will NOT be able to view your lessons until you get the login information.
You will start by clicking either the link in the email or the link in the upper right of this website navigation bar (hint, if the text on the navigation bar reads “Logout” you are already logged in!)
When you click the Login link, you will be brought to a page that looks like this (below). This is where you will enter the personal username and password I emailed you. As the field below and on your browser suggests, you can enter EITHER the username I sent you OR the email address you used when you registered for the course.
After this first log in page, you will be taken to a page looking like this (below) where you will enter your username/password combination again. This is necessary to try and subvert the hacker bad guys!
Once you have entered the information and if you ask your browser to save the information, the browser should save the information making future log-ins easy.
Sometimes at a screen similar to the one above, you might get an error saying something about WordPress requiring cookies. Do not worry! Just enter the correct username/password combination, and it will work the second time.
Once your are logged in (remember, you will see the word “Logout” in the far right of the banner) then you will be able to see additional navigation on the main banner under “Online Courses.”
Mouse-over “Online Courses,” and you will see a link for the course you are signed up for! You can always find your course pages from the main navigation once you are logged in. See image below for placement of this navigation item. These course navigation links only show when you are logged in.
Continued Log-in Request
If you log in, try and view a page, and the page says you need to log in to view it (but you are already logged in), click the “refresh” icon on your browser. It looks something like this:
Above is what the “refresh button” looks like on a couple of computer web browsers.
Above is where to find the “refresh” button on an Android phone. First, click the 3 dots in the upper right. Then, click the circle icon in the upper right, and the page will refresh!
Above is a screenshot from an iPhone with the “refresh” icon marked. I believe you might need to “pull down” the window to see this (I’m getting directions from my daughter!).
Refreshing the page should allow it to “realize” you are logged in and let you view the page.
If you have any problems accessing your lesson pages, contact us immediately, and we will help you.
