The Course About Page
Before you enroll in a course, the start date and course duration are visible on the course About page.
After you enroll in a course, the course start date is visible on your dashboard under the course name. Some courses also include a start time.
A course may start at any time on its start date. If your course is not available the first time you try to access the course, try again later on that day. You do not need to sign in exactly when the course begins.
