Course progress, or how much of the course you have completed, is Topic-by-Topic. The software rarely misses the progress point that you have completed half of a topic (i.e. half of Indigenous Canada). Please consider starting and finishing a whole topic in one sitting, if you can.
Online learning sites are technically complex. The IRG’s site requires cookies to work correctly on your local machine, and sometimes the cookies get corrupted. Please log out of The IRG, delete any cookies on your computer, and log in new. This step resolves many issues. If the issue persists, please email us.
