I did the MOOC, but I can’t print the achievement.

  • Choose COURSE TOOLS from the left menu and then MY GRADES. Make sure you have completed everything. To earn the achievement, you need:
    • FYE 101 – 120 of a possible 150 points
    • ENG 101 – 384 of a possible 480 points
    • CIS 127 – 120 of a possible 150 points
    • Capstone Refresher – 168 of a possible 210 points
  • For ENG 101, make sure you have completed the PRE-TEST and the REFLECTION. They do not have point value, but are required for the achievement.
  • If you have used both quiz attempts for each module, print your grades and contact your instructor. To print grades, choose COURSE TOOLS and then MY GRADES. Ctrl-P to print what is on the screen.

How can I tell if I have used both quiz attempts for a module?

  • Choose MY GRADES in the left menu. Click the GRADED tab for a list of quizzes you have taken. Click the quiz title to see the attempts.

I registered, but I don’t see the Research Skills MOOC.

I forgot my password.

  • From the MOOC/CourseSites link, choose SIGN IN and FORGOT PASSWORD.
  • Choose EMAIL ADDRESS OPTION.
  • Check your email and follow directions to reset password.
  • If this doesn’t work, contact Suzanne Levasseur and/or Ellen Pratt (email addresses below).

How do I email my achievement to my professor?

  • Choose COURSE TOOLS from the left menu in the MOOC.
  • Choose ACHIEVEMENTS. On the right of the achievements are three small icons. Choose the third one, the print icon.
  • With the achievement certificate on your screen, press the CTRL and Print Screen keys at the same time. This will take a “screenshot” of everything on your computer screen.
  • Create an email to your instructor. With your cursor in the body of the email press the keys CTRL and V at the same time. This will paste the achievement into the email.

What if I have another kind of problem?
