What's New with the Core & Advanced Curricula on RapidLMS?

This is a reference guide to help you find the resources and changes to the new course layout!

With the changes to the program and platform move from Moodle to RapidLMS, we have created this quick reference guide to help you find the resources and changes to the course layout.

We recommend starting with the “Getting Started, Case Studies & Program Details” section in “Unit 1 – Personal Finance Building Block (Self-Study)” in the “My Courses” section of your new profile, as it discusses all the new resources, layouts, and updates to the program.

 

We will use Unit 1 as the example module in this chart. The other modules are laid out the same.
