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.

Your screen may be zoomed in too much causing you to miss a prompt or navigation button. To zoom out on a PC hit ‘[CTRL] + 0’ and on a Mac hit ‘[command] + 0’.

If you’ve clicked all the action items on the slide, and you’re still not able to move forward, clear your browser’s cache. Also, be sure your pop-up blocker is turned off and 3rd party cookies are enabled.

If the ‘Next’ button is lit up and you are still not able to move forward after completing the above steps, contact LawRoom’s 24/7/365 technical support center for a resolution. Here’s the direct link: https://everfi-cc-lr.edusupportcenter.com
