Create New Username & New Password - Then What?

Situation:   You weren't assigned a Username with Password, and you aren't exactly sure how to proceed.

Background:  An online course has been purchased, and you need to create a new Username with Password pair before being able to start the course.

Bottomline:   It'll take a couple of extra steps before you can begin the course.

Recommended Steps:
  1. You should already be on the learning system login page, otherwise navigate to the learning system login page (click this link)
  2. Think of a new Username and new Password. Remember them, you'll need them again. Enter them on the learning system login page, then click the Login button.
  3. The "Edit Profile" page appears.  Fill out the required fields, indicated by red text and an asterisk. Then click the "Update Profile" button located at the bottom of the page.
  4. The "Profile" page appears. Find the "Home" link (it's at the top left corner of the page, in a breadcrumb trail). Click it.
  5. The "Front Page" of the online learning site appears.  Scroll down the page, and locate your course. Click on the name of the course you're going to take.
  6. The "Enrollment Key" page appears.  Enter the enrollment key (you get one after paying for the course), then click the "Enroll me" button.
  7. Voila!  You're ready to start your course.
