I am having difficulty logging into the site. What can I do?
If you have already created an account but can't remember your login details, you can use the
automated forgotten password reset system. If you're still having problems logging in after resetting your password, there are a few of things you can try:
Make sure you're using the correct capitalisation on the username/password (copy/pasting from the email can help to prevent errors).
Try clearing your cache (see below for how to do this).
How do I turn on cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored by your computer that allow the site to track important data about you as a user (such as the fact that you are logged in). Allowing such files to be created/stored is necessary for the site to function properly. More information about what cookies are and why they are needed can be found here. If you're having problems logging in (or remaining logged in), you may have cookies disabled. Instructions on how to enable cookies can be found here.
How do I clear my cache?
If you open any part of the site (a page, course, module, etc) and it isn't showing what you expect (such as missing saved data within a course), you might be seeing a "cached" version. This is where your web browser (in order to make sites load faster) shows you a version of the page it has saved locally, rather than requesting a new version of the page from the site. In order to prevent this, you can clear your browser's cache (its local store of web pages). Instructions on how to do this for various browsers can be found here. Once you've done this, refresh the page. This is also a possible solution to login problems.
