First: say Hello!
For example, before you begin tackling the course content, you need to introduce yourself to your fellow learners in the 'Welcome' discussion forum. A greyed out title means you need to complete a previous activity before you can access other items in the course.

The system will automatically tick activities that you've attempted, completed or viewed.
First topic opens
Now the first topic opens, it's no longer greyed out, and you can get on with the course. In the example above, you will need to view 1.1 before the 1.2 Discussion opens. Getting Started - 7
Navigate with the 'Breadcrumb trail'
When you view a resource such as a webpage, download a pdf, or when you complete an activity - use the breadcrumb trail to navigate back to the course area.
