Courses with a completion circle represent courses that have not been started and can be started at any time [1]. Once the course has been viewed, the course shows the course progression. Completed progress is indicated with the shading in the completion circle [2].

The estimated time to complete the course is displayed under the course title. If the author designated an estimated duration for the course, the estimated time remaining is calculated by subtracting the time that the user has viewed the course.

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 the course includes quiz questions, each quiz question counts as one minute.

If the 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 the course is more than 44 minutes, the displayed estimate will be rounded to the nearest hour.
