An overview of the course
spacer
The toolkit is presented here in the form of three course modules:

  • Using the toolkit: provides you with full instructions for using the toolkit
  • Sample pages: contains templates for common presentational and question pages
  • Sample test: contains templates for creating pre and post tests

It makes sense to start with 'using the toolkit'.pixel.gif (807 bytes)

Moving between pages and levels
spacer
At the top right of the screen you will see three buttons. At the moment they are all inactive, like this:

previous page - example onlyback to the start - example onlynext page - example only

When they are available to use they look like this:

previous page - example onlyback to the start - example onlynext page - example only

When a series of pages is being presented in sequence, you can use the left and right buttons to take you to the previous and next pages respectively. The central button takes you to the next level up in the course, whether this is the current page (if you have been viewing the glossary), the beginning of the module or the course title page.

Answering questions
spacer
Throughout the course, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to interact. Your answers to these questions are not scored in any way, so feel free to experiment - you can select as many alternative answers as you wish before moving on.

You'll encounter a wide range of question types, using standard Windows input devices such as:

check boxes

radio buttons

text boxes

In each case, all you need to do is follow the instructions.

The final test is a little different in that this time you will be scored. You'll receive no feedback as you go through the quiz, but you will see a summary of your scores at the end.

Progress report
spacer
From the course title page, you can access your progress report at any time. This acts as a reminder of the modules you have not started, started or completed and, for tests, whether you have not started the test, failed or passed.

As you go through the course modules, any sections you have completed will be ticked off on the module menus. If the ticks appear to relate to a previous user rather than yourself, you can click on the reset button to remove them.
