I keep getting an error message when I try to create an account with my email. How can I join?
Please note that you will need to enter your email twice: once in the “Email Address” field and again to confirm it in the “Re-enter Email” field. Please make sure that the email address entered is a working address.
You will need to use two separate email addresses if you would like to take two of our courses. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Is there a time frame in which I am expected to complete the course?
No. Please feel free to take the lessons and activities and learn the information at your own pace. We send out reminder emails to take uncompleted lessons and/or activities since we want to make sure that people are getting everything they can out of their experience with AlzU.org (but it is not meant to rush you!).
How do I view my quiz results?
Visit the Lesson Menu to access your quiz results for each lesson. There is a button to view the correct answers adjacent to the button you can click to view the lesson.

Do I need to have a webcam to use your website?

Lesson 4 doesn’t of the Prevention course (for the general public) does not work for me. Are you able to fix it?
While most of the time Lesson 4 works correctly, some computers are unable to view the entire lesson. In order to bypass lesson 4, you will need to type this link into your browser https://www.alzu.org/lesson/complete/4/ when you are logged in at the main Lesson menu of AlzU (www.AlzU.org/lesson). This will mark Lesson 4 as being completed so you can continue the rest of the course.
