Courses with a gray completion circle [1] represent courses that you have not started and can begin at any time. Once you have viewed the course, the course shows the status of how far you have progressed in the course. Your completed progress [2] is indicated with the blue shading in the completion circle.

The estimated time to complete the course is displayed under the course title. If the author designated an estimated duration for the course, your estimated time remaining is calculated by subtracting the time you have spent from that number.

If the author did not designate an estimated duration, estimated time to complete the course is calculated by taking the number of words on a slide and dividing it by 180wpm. If your course includes quiz questions, each quiz question counts as one minute. If your course includes video, the video minutes will be added to the word minutes to calculate the estimated time. If the estimated time it takes to complete your course is more than 44 minutes, the displayed estimate will be rounded to the nearest hour.
