My Online Courses: Frequently Asked Questions

I can't view the course materials – I just get a link to return to the course page

The most likely problem is that pop-ups are blocked in your browser, so that when you click the link to open the course materials, the new window doesn't open. If you allow pop-ups for this eLearning website, then you should find the materials load. Please see the list below for instructions on allowing pop-ups from specific browsers.

Where is my certificate?

For courses offering a certificate (all courses, except the two WELL courses), your certificate is available to download once you have completed the Unit assessment with a high enough score, and the Course evaluation. It appears on the course home page, beneath the links to the Unit assessment and Course evaluation.

Where is my certificate?

WEDC regrets that it is not able to supply paper copies of certificates, but you can print your own from the file provided.

If online learning isn't for you, you can find out more about the classroom-based and distance learning courses WEDC offers here.

Can I study these course on my iPad or other phone/tablet?

The WELL courses are PDF based and the materials can be accessed from any device with PDF capabilities built in.

The other courses make use of Flash technologies, and so require a browser which can support this. Although Apple devices don't natively support Flash, some users have reported that the iSwifter app will allow you to access the course materials. Please note: Any use of apps on your own devices is entirely at your own risk, and WEDC takes no responsibility for any consequences that might arise from the use of this app or any other.
