How do I join a course on OpenLearning?

So you've found a course that interests you but are wondering how to become a part of it? 

For any course, you'll reach a landing page with a big, orange button that says Join the Course as shown:

Click on the button and you can start learning and participating in the course!

If you don't have an account yet, you will be prompted to create one.

If you already have an account, but you haven't logged in yet, you will be prompted to enter your username and password,

  • I have the following issue. I have linked my e-course on a website to join, but after pushing the button and creating the account, instead of getting straight in the course the main page of openlearning appears. Also the course is nowhere to be found either in the middle button up right of the page.
    Of course i checked that it is online. Is there a way to join straight in the course without getting in the main page?

  • Hello,

    Yes sure here it is. https://www.openlearning.com/courses/impe

    I understand that first someone has to register and i completely agree with that, but i think it will be more convenient for users since they press the "join the course" button and the registration pops up for the first time then to be forward in the course automatically. 

    I hope you understand what i am describing!!! 

    If anything you need please ask.

      IASIS Hi, it seems there is a bug. We have informed our technical team to look into it. Thank you for escalating this issue to us.

       

      In the meantime, the temporary solution is for you to tell the students to click on 'Sign Up' instead of 'Join the course'. If they click on Sign Up instead, they will be redirected to your course without going to the main page. Then they can join the course as usual.

       

      Hope this helps. We'll update you in the future once this issue is fixed. :)

      Wajid Abbasi Hi! 

      You can get the activation code from the course staff. You can contact them by posting a comment or sending them a private message from their profile page. To reach that page, simply click on their name. Please note that some courses are private, and they may not be able to share the code with you.

      Hope this helps! :)

      John Brady Hi there! Some courses can be set so that only people invited by the course admins via email can join the course. You can ask the course creators to add you to the course but please understand that they may turn you down. You can find information on how to contact the course admins here: https://help.openlearning.com/t/q55w1k/how-do-i-obtain-the-activation-code-for-a-specific-course

      John Brady Thank you for the screenshot it's very helpful. I see now that you're on Learn which is a bit different from standard OpenLearning. Could you please link me to the course you're trying to join so I can have a look?
