Technical Tips & Tricks

Life Strategies recognizes that our students have different comfort levels, experiences, and preferences for online learning. Our goal is to provide a streamlined e-learning experience. To support your success, these technical tips and tricks have been compiled to support students using Life Strategies' e-learning management system, Moodle. This includes students from Life Strategies' LearnOnline programs as well as courses Life Strategies’ is hosting for external training providers

In each course, there is a Technical Support forum where you can post additional questions or concerns that are not addressed here. For direct assistance, please feel free to call our offices (604-856-2386) or email

3. Course Resources

3.2. Pages

Pages are used to present a wide variety of content on one web page. Unlike a book, there are no chapters / sub-chapters and you, unfortunately, cannot print them easily.You will find these pages introduce resources, detail assigned readings, and often include links to various web resources (e.g., news/research articles, videos, blog posts) which will enhance your learning. You may also encounter notes with optional reading or viewing material. While they are not required for course completion, we highly recommend you explore their content for further insight and for potential future use.

To ensure functionality, our LearnOnline team checks each link prior to the start of the course. If you are unable to open a web link, this may be a temporary glitch on the website. You can try back a few moments later and if it’s still not available, let us know immediately (i.e., phone our office, email, or a post within the Technical Support discussion forum). Our team can help you to access the resource or provide an alternative.
