How to attend your course sessions and navigate your student portal.

Updated over a week ago

You can attend your course sessions in CourseNinja using any up-to-date browsers on your smartphone or computer through your student portal. This is the one place where you can access all your course details, download your handouts and attend live sessions with your instructor.

Logging into your student portal

After registering for a course, you'll be redirected to the Thank you page. Where you can click on Get to your Student Portal.

Enter your email address and password to log in to your student portal.

You can also find the login button in the confirmation email.

You will receive additional email reminders as each session in the course approach. Open any email from the webinar host, and you'll find each of the session links as well as the student portal link:

Once logged in, you will see the courses you enrolled in. Click View Course to access the course you are enrolled in.

Click More Courses from the “instructor” on the left to check out more published courses.

Click Learn More to register for another course you might be interested in. You will be redirected to the course's sales page where you can continue to sign up.

Attending a session

Step 1: Log in to your student portal. The student portal link can be found in the course's reminder emails.

Step 2: On your dashboard, find the course you wish to attend and click View Course.

Step 3: Click on Go to Session Room button to the right of the individual sessions.

You can enter the session room as early as 10 minutes before the start time. This is when the button to join and enter the session room will become available.

Navigating the Session Room

Once logged in, you will see the session screen and engagement area on the right side.

Send a message to all participants in the chat area.

You can send a private message to the instructor and have them message you back by clicking on the instructor’s avatar.

Hover your mouse over your chat message and click the ellipsis(three dots) on the side to edit or remove your message.

Ask questions in the Questions area to avoid them being lost in the general chat.

If applicable, respond to Polls in the 3rd tab on the right.

See if there are any Offers in the next tab.

Check out the handout the host may have provided on the Handouts tab to the right.

If enabled by the instructor, students can also attend on camera once the sessions start. Click the Start Video icon on the left menu to share your webcam, mic, and screen with the rest of the participants.
