Once you have created a Techboomers account, you can begin tracking the courses and tutorials for the websites and applications that you want to learn how to use. That way, you can remember what services you wanted to learn, remember which ones you've already learned, and pick up where you left off if you had to stop in the middle of taking a course.
Go to www.techboomers.com in your web browser and click Log In.
If you signed up for Techboomers by using your Facebook or Google account, click Log In With Facebook or Log In With Google (respectively), and log into the account that you chose.
If you signed up for Techboomers with your email account instead, click in the box labelled "Email" and type in your email address. Then click in the box labelled "Password" and type in your account password. Finally, click Log In.
Navigate to a course page (see our How to Use Techboomers tutorial if you need help finding one) and click Add [Website/Application] to My Courses on the right-hand side.
While logged into your Techboomers account, click My Courses. Under "My Active Courses", you will see the courses that you have chosen to track, along with a measure of how many core lessons you have completed in that course versus the total number of core lessons in that course. (Extra resources, such as how to change or reset your password or delete your account, do not count towards this total.)
To get back to a course that you're in the middle of taking, simply click on it.
Once you're on a course page, click on a tutorial that you wish to view. Once you are finished reading it (or better yet, following along with it), click Mark as Completed on the right-hand side. You can also click it again, when it says Tutorial Completed, if you make a mistake and need to mark the tutorial as incomplete again.
Click Back to Course Page to go back to the course that the tutorial is from.
When you return to the course page, you will notice that tutorials you have completed will have a green checkmark next to them. For core tutorials that have not been completed, this checkmark will be greyed out.
To complete a course, simply repeat step 2 for each core tutorial in the course.
Once you have completed all core tutorials for a course, you will receive a congratulatory message. If you click My Courses, you will see courses that you have completed under "My Completed Courses". You can still click on a course here to go back to it and review what you have learned.
That's a basic explanation of how to track, take, and complete courses on Techboomers!
