Connection Status

Your current status is :

Status Unknown

Below is a description of what each state means


This is the normal mode for a training unit operate.

This means the training unit has successfully located your LMS. The training unit will work in conjuction with your LMS (VLE, TMS) to record your progress, time taken, notes taken and results are all being relayed to and record by your LMS.

If you were to leave the training and come back at a later point, the training unit will be able to recover all these details from the LMS and restore you to the exact state you left it in.

Not Connected

This means the training unit has not been able to find a LMS (VLE,TMS).

If this is the case you will be working in an "offline mode", this mean your progress, notes and results will not be stored in an LMS, even if you pass/complete the training no record will be stored of this. If you were to leave the content and return you will be starting the training afresh.

This could simply mean you are reviewing the course material or even watching a course material demo. If this is the case then working without an LMS conection is completely normal
