Understanding autism

Moving around the course

In the ‘Summary’ at the end of each week, you can find a link to the next week. If at any time you want to return to the start of the course, click on the ‘Course content’ link displayed in the sidebar on any page. This page lists all weeks of the course, showing how much of each week you have completed. Click on the arrows beside each week to display a more detailed breakdown of your progress through that week – green ticks indicating the pages you have already visited. You can use this to navigate to any part of the course.

Alternatively, you can use the numbered week links at the top of every page of the course.

It's also good practice, if you access a link from within a course page (including links to the quizzes), to open it in a new window or tab. That way you can easily return to where you’ve come from without having to use the back button on your browser.
