Course Navigation
Across the top of each page are links to assist with navigation through the course. Directly under that on the left is a table of contents for the page. Under the navigation links and to the right is a Leap Point box with tips on saving time in the course if you already have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes addressed on a page. At the bottom of each page is a link to move forward to the next page.

Page Structure
Each page begins by listing Objectives. Next are resources and activities to help you meet the objectives. Lastly, a Moving On section provides a brief summary of main ideas and leads into the next section.

This course offers numerous interactive opportunities. The more you make use of the opportunities, the more you will get out of the course. To obtain a KNILT login, visit KNILT:About
