Course and badge information
If you just want to study the course for your own interest and do not require a statement of participation or a digital badge, then you can do so without enrolling on the course.
However, if you wish to save or record your answers to the end of section and end of course quizzes, or if you would like to be able to receive a statement of participation or a digital badge, then you need to be enrolled on the course.
Enrolling on the course
