Registration and Access
You can gain immediate access to this course by following these simple instructions.
Step 1: Ensure that your computer is ready to take the course
To maximize the use of the course, you will need to download Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, Adobe Reader, and Adobe Flash Player (8.0 or higher) if you do not already have them on your computer. This software is free but will require you to have administrative rights on your computer.
You will also need to disable your pop-up blocker and make sure your audio is working on your computer.

Step 2: Register
You will register through the University of Minnesota online registration system. This system uses pop-ups.
Follow the instructions and provide the required information. This registration system will:
- Guide you to "create a new guest account" to use for the course. (If you have a University of Minnesota x500 internet ID/password, you will skip this step.)
- Collect basic information about you, needed by the course instructor.
- Give you the link to immediately access the online course after the above steps have been completed. (See below for follow-up steps.)
