Print Online Courses

Click the printer icon in the upper right and select Currently Selected Menu Item or Entire Tutorial, then Launch Printable Version to print the online course

When printing, be aware it can take time for the printed version to load due to the high volume of content. Please refer to this table for times:

Load time will vary between 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on how long the online course is. If it's an introductory section, or advanced section only, the load time will be mere seconds. Full online courses that are much longer, may take a little longer to load.

Course Average Printing Time
Finance Online Course 20 seconds
Financial Accounting Online Course 40 seconds
Management Communication: Complete Online Course 30 seconds
Mathematics for Management Online Course 10 seconds
Quantitative Methods Online Course 4 minutes

I'm a professor and I want to print off the exercises from the online courses to use as pop quizzes. Is this possible?

No, there is not a file of just the exercise questions which can be printed. You could launch the printable version of the course and then copy out the exercise content. There are some instances where the answers will not appear because some of the exercises are Flash-based interactive and the printable version only grabs/displays non-Flash text.

Online Courses Coursepack Use

Our coursepacks are the delivery method and our site help explains the coursepack creation process. 

Free Trials

Educator Premium accounts may access a Free Trial for 3 months to determine if they would like to use the product as course material. Go to and click on the course you want to demo.

Now click the 'Run Online Course as a Student' link to launch the student view.

Can I access the student version by clicking the 'Run Course Section' link in the 'Student View' section of my coursepack?

No. The 'Run Course Section' link in the 'Student View' section of your coursepack is not active; the 'Student View' is intended only to give the same visual students encounter when accessing your coursepack, and is not intended to include the full functionality available to the students when they log into their coursepack.
