Find your Activity, Replies and Progress faster, with new in-course navigation

If you’re currently taking a FutureLearn course you may have noticed new in-course navigation, which enables you to easily jump to different features of the course. Here, our Product Manager, Tessa Cooper, explains how it works.

A screenshot of the new in-course navigation on FutureLearn

These great features have always existed, but they were hidden under the left-hand FutureLearn steps icon, so you might not have found and benefited from them. For instance, one learner told us:

“I completed a whole course before realising a lot of the useful features for navigation. Thankfully, when I started a second course, I was able to watch a short video clip about those, which was useful. So maybe make sure people know where to look for this.”

We’ve listened to your feedback and made the navigation more visible. This now means that, in addition to the “To do” list where you can find and access all of a course’s weeks and steps, you can now easily access the following elements of a course with one simple click:


The “Activity” page is a feed of all comments being made on a course. You might find it useful to quickly scan any interesting comments from educators and other learners who are on your course. If you click on a comment that you’re interested in, it takes you to the full conversation in the comments section of that step.


The “Replies” page is where you can see if anyone has responded to any of your comments within a course. This replies feed acts as a springboard back into the conversation, to help you catch up, rather than replicating the entire conversation. You can find out more about how replies work in this post.


Not only can you see at a glance which steps you have or haven’t completed on your “To do” list, you can also see how much of a course you’ve completed, including all of your test scores, on your “Progress” page.

In order to make sure this is up-to-date, don’t forget to hit “Mark as complete” every time you finish a course step. On this page, you’ll also see the option to purchase a Statement of Participation – an eye-catching printed certificate.

My courses

The final important change is that when you’re signed in, the left-hand FutureLearn steps icon will now always take you back to the “Your courses” page, where you can access all of the courses you’ve joined.

Here, you can also join new courses via the “Courses” link at the top or the “Browse more courses” button at the bottom. We’ll be developing this page further in the future, to give you more personalised course recommendations and updates.

We’ll be sharing more around how we researched, designed and built this new navigation with you soon.

If you have any feedback on the changes, please leave us a comment below. And for further advice on how to get the best out of FutureLearn, read more of our “Tips & Tricks.”

    1. WEEK 1- Press 1st pink box, read or listen to question through your assignment, your giving your answer, to the University question or request. You then officially post it online with your friends comments, press POST, then it will automatically post your assignment online. After that you go to the only circle you see, press on the circle and it will give you a big tick in blue circle. After that scroll up your page press on PROGRESS, there is a small circle, then it will automatically sub-total your points from 1% to 50% to 70% to, 100%, depending on how much effort you put into your assignment is important to read, analyse, correct, proof read, then post your assignment with all your answer’s to the question. After, that is POSTED, with everyone else’s commentaries assignments, press on circle get a big tick, scroll up press on PROGRESS, see your percentage score. Then repeat, for every pink box you open & complete your answer, POST. And everytime you go back to do the next assignment you’ll notice the pink boxes turned into blue boxes, that means you’ve completed the assignment tasks, in order of number 1-2-3. This is how you know your on the right path

    Dear Future Learn,
    I ,have completed my Corporate Lawyers, course and passed but I don’t know how to pay for it, do I go to the bank do it online or by cheque addressed to Future Learn, or what PLEASE HELP, TO ADVISE ME. Today is 26/11/2016 in New Zealand. Please email, if LAWYERS for NON-LAWYERS,is starting again, so I can join, in with Australia & be more focused & concentrating to do my best, like I did with Corporate Lawyers. I want to redo my LAWYERS for NON-LAWYERS,please. Also I got 100% with Burmington University to do with CORPORATE LAWYERS.

  • Kathleen Thomas

    I have not been able to access the technicalities of this learning system at all. It seems to be a system of computer technologies which one needs to know before accessing the detail of the course. Far too complex and further complicated when one’s access to the internet is unstable. It has been a complete waste of time.

  • Feigni

    How many posts should someone make in other to have good percentage.

  • Kathleen Thomas

    I am totally confused by the techniques used for the course. These techniques have served only to obscure the content for me and made the course largely irrelevant: more an exercise in computer techniques. This is a pity, as I can see that it could be extremely useful and relevant if it were not so obscured by “computerize”.

  • Kaushalya Munda

    Hello, Peers,
    Please accept as one of the peer for the course Sustainable food system

  • A.B.M. Feroz Ahmed

    Hi, I am very new to this type of online course. Would you please send me more instruction about my participation in the course (for instance, discussion, exam, evaluation process, etc)? Also, how can I communicate with Course Leader? It would be great if I have his email address.

    • Hi there, it isn’t possible to communicate with a Lead Educator directly by email. However, it is possible that the course educators will read and respond to comments within the course discussion. Therefore, if you have questions, we would encourage you to post them in the course so that other learners, as well as educators, may help you and you can help them.

    The Ist ever video ” HOW IT WORKS ‘ does not work at all. The management should check it please.

    The website is not easy to understand. It look like that some unprofessional person have designed it. The web site should be user friendly, The information should be clear and consistent. It should be user friendly . It should indicate the directions of information clearly.

    Every information should be available in the form easy to downloadable videos. If there is no videos, then it is difficult to learn.

    It would be a good idea if these features are available through a mobile application that allows learners access courses through mobile phones.

    Hi future learn
    Is there anyway I can put a short cut tab on my desktop, so I don’t have to go back and open an email from you every time I want to get on my course and do some work?

  • maria di summa

    I’m sorry, i dont’see the videos. i try to search in FAQs but nothing solves my problem, can someone help me? The window of the videos is black and in the left down corner the duration of the video is 0:00

    Oh my gosh, I wish I had found you sooner. But as the old adage goes, It’s better late than never.” I’ve been telling all my friends and family about your link. It’s soo good I just cannot keep it to myself.
    Looking forward to taking my first corse on Ebola……

    I also like the fact that you can get a certificate at the end. It’s good for your CV and continuing professional development (CPD).

    Thank you for making this on-line course available – globally!!! LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING NEW FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD.

  • Tracey Sawyer

    Great! I love the way FL doesn’t have useless updates but ones that are needed and actually improve the way things work. Well done, you all!

  • Howard Harris

    re. Progress: I have completed five FutureLearn courses and all but one have recorded my progress. However Forensic Science and Criminal Justice does not show any recorded progress at all. I find this odd as courses before and after it have been recorded. Fortunately I have kept a back-up copy of my progress. Please could you correct this glitch. Thanks in advance.

  • Zo Nicholas

    Neatly organised – much better. Thanks

  • Barbara Powell

    I like the changes and love the way you are constantly updating and responding to learners’ feedback. Maybe it’s just my age but I also appreciate the whole layout of the learning materials (4 FLs to date!) – so clear and professional compared to other MOOCS where each page can seem so untidy and cluttered, leading the eye away from the main learning focus. A question about progress: in my mind I have completed the Shakespeare course but as I didn’t do the optional assignment, my progress is noted as 98% . How does this affect your own statistics with regard to achievement, retention and completion? ( I used to work in FE and know how important this data is for viability etc..). There isn’t a way of saying we have completed a course is there?

  • Ali Almajdoub

    Every thing is okay thank you for everything, you courses are organised in convenient way
    I want to suggest something. It will be amazing, if there is an icon for chatting with some participators specially when the course in progress, to interact more with each other. Thank you
    I am waiting your replies for my suggestion.

  • Mike Meehan

    This new course, starting 12.01.2015, will follow on nicely from the current course, ‘Our Changing Climate, Past Present and Future’ and I am particularly interested in ‘greening’ the deserts, something I have been advocating for the past year or so

  • skholiwe Mngometulu

    my goodness this is great! it truly is a useful technic for one to manouvre around the Future Learn corridors. navigation has never been so much fun!

  • Fiona Johnston

    I still l cannot access my progress, it still brings be back to courses when I try so this has not solved anything

    • The FutureLearn team

      Hi Fiona,
      Sorry that you’re having problems finding your “Progress” page. You can find it by clicking on the “Progress” tab in the new menu that you should now see at the top of any page within a course. The menu is highlighted in the red box in the screenshot above.
      If you click on the steps icon now, it will always take you back to “My courses.”

  • Catherine

    I was delighted to see this when i logged on. Thank you. So good the way you respond to learners’ suggestions.
