How do I create a new Learner Account?
Welcome to your online school. To Log In to your school you have to create a new account. There are two ways to accomplish this:
The first one is to simply connect with one of your social network accounts. It’s the easiest way by far since you don’t need to remember yet another password. To log in, simply click on the button corresponding to the social network you prefer to use and follow the process. You will be asked to confirm your email address, so make sure that you enter a valid email address.
The second option for creating a new account is using your email. Click on the "Create Account" link that can be found in the login form.
Fill out the simple registration form with your name, email and desired password and click on the "Start your learning journey" button.
That’s it, you may now access the online school and browse through the available courses.
How to Log In to my existing Account?
If you’ve used a social account (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google) to register to the school then all you need to do is click on the respective button in the Login form
If you’ve used your email to register for the school then simply fill out your e-mail and password in the login form and click "Login".
That’s it, you can browse through our course catalog!
Problems Logging in to your Account?
First of all make sure that the combination of e-mail and password you tried is correct (for security reasons our error message doesn’t explicitly reference whether you made a mistake in your email or password. This is deliberately so to make it harder for malicious individuals to guess any account details). If you are still having problems it might that have forgotten your password. In this case you can simply ask for a new one to be sent out to you. Click on the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the "Login" button.
Type the email that corresponds to your account and click "Send". An email will be sent to you with a link for setting a new password for your account. If you don’t see the email appearing in your Inbox, make sure to also check the spam folder as it may have been accidentally caught by your email's spam filter. If this is the case then make sure to identify this message as "Not spam" so that you don’t lose any future correspondence from your online school.
There are two kinds of courses the free ones and the ones you have to buy.
If the course you want to enroll is free just click on "Start for free" button and you will have full access to the content. If the course you want to enroll is not free click on "Enroll" button (the course’s prices should be visible, right next to enroll) and follow the checkout process. When you finish the course contents will unlock for you.

Troubleshoot issues with Video
Our video player automatically tries to adjust the video quality to your internet speed, giving you the highest quality possible but in certain cases, for very slow connections, this might not be possible. If you’re experiencing excessive buffering during playback, it’s probably because your Internet connection cannot support continuous playback of the video. In this case try to reset your connection/internet router or, if possible, try accessing your online courses using a better internet connection.
