Troubleshooting

If you are experiencing any problems with the online classroom please refer to the information below to answer any questions/problems you may be experiencing.

 

Course Summary

There are 60 lessons (called Units).  Each unit is 30 minutes long.  You can complete a maximum of 4 Units/day.  The course can be completed in a minimum of 3 weeks and a maximum of 6 months.

Audio for Units

Several of the units DO NOT have any audio in the unit.  The unit was developed that way as there is no need to have audio in some units.  UNIT ONE DOES NOT HAVE ANY AUDIO.

ERROR MESSAGE – TOKEN FAILURE

If a student using the main program receives an error message indicating a TOKEN FAILURE, it means that the student took longer than the allotted time to complete the unit.  There is a set time for each unit to be completed in.  That time is between 45 – 60 minutes.  If the student does not complete the unit within that time frame, the system will automatically shut down.  This is to keep the student from starting the unit video and then doing other things.

If the student gets the TOKEN FAILURE message, they must log out of the program, close the browser, and then log in from the main page and NOT the unit home page.  If they do not log out of the program, they will get a SERVER ERROR when they hit the COMPLETED button at the bottom of the unit page.

Getting SERVER ERROR message when hitting COMPLETED button.

If the student is not correctly logged into the program, the system will not know whom to give unit completion to and will result in a SERVER ERROR message.  The student will still be able to watch the unit but will not receive completion credit due to the system not knowing whom to give the completion credit to.

On the top right of the program page it will indicate if the student is logged in.  If they are logged in correctly, it will say  “ Hello – 000-0000 (student’s username)”  If the student’s username does not appear at the top right of the page, the student is not logged in correctly.

DO NOT BOOKMARK THE UNIT HOME PAGE

Please make sure not to bookmark the unit home page.  This is the page that shows the list of units. You must access the program from the main page at: www.wpdsastudents.org

www.wpdsastudents.org may be bookmarked.  The system will not work properly if you don’t enter from the main page.

Logging out after each unit when using Main Program

For the program to run properly, please logout after completing each unit.  Each unit is set with a timed Token that expires.  Once the Token expires, the student may be able to continue using the program but it will no longer register the student’s unit completions.

Each time you login, the Token timer starts over.  If you do not logout after the completion of each unit, the Token timer may expire and you will receive a SERVER ERROR message.
