Navigating the LMS as a Learner

The Home Page



After logging into the LMS, you will be taken directly to the Home page. The Home page contains a number of critical components, described in the following sections.
The top of each page in the system has a header, which contains several links to key pages in the system. Specifically:
  1. The left side of the header contains links to your Home page, Dashboard page and Record of Learning, described below.
    1. Home: Returns you to this Home page.
    2. Dashboard: Takes to the Dashboard page.
    3. Record of Learning: Takes you to a page detailing your entire learning history.
  2. The right side of the page contains links to your system messaging, notifications and your profile. 
    1. Messaging enables you to send and receive messages to other LMS users, including your sponsor and ABCFP LMS Help.

    1. Notifications will show you automated system notifications regarding document submissions, grading by your sponsor, announcements and more. When you have new notifications in the system, the number of new notifications will appear in red  will appear next to the notifications icon.

    1. Clicking on your name shows the Profile menu, allowing you to view your own profile, access the above links and log out of the system.

Blocks

Most pages in the system, including the Home page, will have 'widgets' on the left and sometimes right side of the page, known as blocks. These blocks provide links to other important information and/or functionality. For example, the Home page includes the following blocks: 
  1. Resume Last Module: Takes you directly to the last module on which you were working. See How do I resume the last module I was working on? for more information.
  2. Roadmap: Enables you to open the full roadmap or expand the block to access the last module(s) on which you were working and your roadmap progress. See How do I find my roadmap? for more information.
  3. Need Help?: Provides links to this Knowledge Base, as well as support telephone and hours.

Announcements

The center of the Home page includes announcements from the ABCFP.  Click on the name of an announcement to view it.

Additional Navigation Elements


Every page in the system will have 'breadcrumbs' below the page header. You can use the breadcrumbs to easily return to a previous page by clicking on the breadcrumb.

Module Block

When in a module, an additional block will display, the Module block. The Module block will be titled with the name of the module. This block enables you to access each section of the module, as well as view your module gradebook, where relevant. 
IMPORTANT TIP: Note that each time you see a  icon in the system, this indicates a menu that can be clicked on and expanded.
