NOTE: Be careful in book marking this web page. There are nine different web servers. These are denoted by ‘bca1, bca2,…, bca9’ somewhere in the web address that will appear as you are logging in. If you bookmark a specific server, it may end up being too busy and you may not be able log in to complete an assignment from time to time. Again, you do not want to go to the same server each time. Therefore, if you book mark the webpage, you should edit the bookmark to http://www.ilrn.com .

Viewing Results of the Assignment Immediately after ending a quiz, your score will be shown. Once the deadline for the quiz has passed, this same page will show a Results chart, listing the overall score, each problem’s score, and a view link to each problem. Click View for any question. That quiz question will appear, along with your answer and the correct answer. Help and Technical Support Help with your iLrn questions can be divided into content issues (how do I work this type of math problem), entering answers, and technical issues (I can’t log in; my browser keeps locking up). Content issues can be asked in the Math Help Room (MATH 205), during your instructor’s office hours, or via the Discussion board (see below). Questions concerning entering answers should be asked via the Discussion board, or using the iLrn help facilities (see below). Technical issues are handled by the course coordinator (Devi Nichols; MATH 902; [email protected]). Further, if you think you have submitted the correct answer but iLrn has counted it as incorrect, you must wait until after the quiz deadline, to view the correct answer. If your answer has indeed been incorrectly graded, you should then email the course coordinator. These questions will not be answered until after the quiz deadline. (Please note that iLrn has been used for several semesters and has never incorrectly graded a student’s answer.) On the MA 223 web page, there is a link to a Discussion board. A live, help assistant is available on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights, from 8:00 p.m. till 10:00 p.m. The help assistant will also answer questions during off hours, but the response will not be immediate. Previously asked questions, and their answers, can also be viewed on the Discussion board. Additionally, there are many available links on the iLrn web pages (Student Tour, iLrn Student’s Quick Start Guide, etc.) as well as student technical support contacts (Phone: 1-800-423-0563, choose option 2, Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; note that these times will change by an hour when clocks are adjusted for daylight savings time.) You can also email questions to: [email protected] If you have any difficulties using your own computer, you must use an ITaP computer, rather than miss any deadline.Changing Sections If you change sections, you will need to re-register, using the access code for the new section. The course coordinator will move any previous quiz scores to the new account. Helpful Hints (a) You must let each page load completely before clicking again, or the page may freeze. (b) You must use the Submit button to enter your answers. You may need to scroll on the page
