Instructions to Access the Lolipop ELP for first time users

These page is for those accessing the ELP the first time. You only need to do this once.

The instructions will explain how to access the Lolipop ELP. It is a straightforward process, however, you have to follow the instructions exactly. If you decide that one step doesn't suit you and you want to skip it, then you won't be able to use the ELP. If you don't understand a step, or it doesn't work, then select the corresponding 'I need more details' link for that step. Don't move on to the next step until you have satisfactorily completed the preceding step or it just won't work.

You will need to create an account.

Locate the Lolipop course on moodle, enroll and select the Lolipop ELP link. VoilĂ , c'est fait.

Note that there is also a link for Lolipop ELPs (plural). Do not select this link, it exposes an error. Apologies for that, we will fix it. Sometime.

Less than 5 minutes if you have the Enrollment key. I need more details

The next time you access Moodle you can get straight to the Lolipop ELP by using the your username and password that you entered when creating the account. If you get annoyed at all the steps, then you could bookmark the page when you get to the ELP and by selecting the bookmark, you will get directly to the ELP (you will still have to enter the username and password).
