General Questions

General Questions:

Q. How do I reset or update my password?

A. Please follow these instructions to reset or update your password here.

Q. What is a label?

A. The purpose of labels are to let students and teachers/coordinators easily keep track of their work (e.g. hours) by writing short descriptions or ‘subjects’. For example, students can set a label for hours to “Week #1”, “Week #2”, and so on. Or, “AM” for morning placements.

Q. What is the upload or attachment size limit?

A. You can attach or upload files up to 10 megabytes (MB) in size.

How do I clear my cache in Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge?

To speed things up and conserve communications bandwidth, browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox) attempt to keep local copies of pages, images, and other content you’ve visited, so that it does not need to be downloaded again later. Occasionally this caching scheme goes awry (e.g. the browser insists on showing out-of-date content) making it necessary to bypass the cache and force your browser to re-download a web page’s complete, up-to-date content.
