Learner Accounts for students

Our Learning Management System (LMS) tracks student enrollment, purchase history, and learning progress under an individual student profile. This means that parents must enroll each child separately. One student per learner account. 

To enroll, each student must have his own valid email account. Free email accounts can be set up through providers such as Gmail, Yahoo! mail, or Mail.com to name a few. Free email accounts are also typically included when you subscribe to an Internet Service Provider such as Shaw, Telus or Rogers.

Troubleshoot issues with Video

Our video player automatically adjusts the video to the highest quality based on your internet speed. However,  in certain cases, very slow connections might not make it possible.

In this case, try to reset your connection/internet router, or if possible, try accessing your online modules using a better internet connection.
