    Shows as 75% when completed

    A few technical difficulties experienced which were frustrating. When you click on a glossary term it takes you to the glossary page with the full definition - however, when you click on 'Previous' it doesn't take you to the page you were working on, as expected. As with other reviewers,I am recorded as completing only 75% of module 1. I have completed the quizzes but have been unable to access course content when returning to finish the module on a different date. Overall, informative.

    Please note: if you download the Word or PDF version of the learning materials to study offline and return to complete the quizzes, you will need to click through the online version of the learning materials to complete the criteria for your digital badge. OpenLearn Create does not synchronise with your offline studying of downloaded materials, so is unable to track your progress when you are studying the materials offline. The site FAQs are being updated with this information and this message is also clearly displayed on the home page of this course.

    Unable to complete course

    Whilst I stand by my previous review I also acknowledge the frustration of the other users who have found themselves only able to complete the course to 75%. This is frustrating and hopefully will be resolved however there does not appear to be a reporting mechanism or FAQ response.
