I am stuck in my course and cannot click the ‘Next’ button. How do I move forward or navigate through the course?
The course is interactive. Look for indicators of what to do next. If the ‘Next’ button is not lit up, review the slide for additional action items. For example, move the mouse over the page and click on anything that gets highlighted and watch all the videos completely.
