Why is course progress not being tracked accurately after I complete a page or a module?

The tracking between your course and the My Web Prof. Courses can be impacted by the reliability and speed of your Internet connection. This is because many variables are passed between the course and My Web Prof. LMS to properly track each page and module that you have visited or completed. If you have a slow or unreliable Internet connection, you may experience inaccurate course progress tracking within your course or the My Web Prof. LMS as page-tracking values may have been lost, overwritten, or sent incorrectly to our servers. To help improve the reliability of course tracking, please ensure that you allow an adequate amount of time for each page of the course to load before proceeding to view a new page; this will likely provide extra time for the course and My Web Prof. to send and update course tracking information. Course tracking accuracy should not impede your ability to successfully complete a course and receive your credit.
