Troubleshooting Vector Courses

If you are having trouble logging in please try the following tips. If you continue to have issue please call the Health Education Resource Center, 217-581-7786 or email (expect a response within 48 business hours).

Please see additional tips below to complete Vector Courses

  1. Use a standard computer (desktop or laptop). Notebooks, tablets, and other mobile devises are not encouraged.
  2. Do not have other windows/frames and other programs open when taking Vector Courses.
  3. Disable all pop-up blockers and uninstall any toolbars. These can cause problems with the media files and cause them to loop over and over.
  4. Do not play music or run other video clips on your computer (ITunes, YouTube, Other websites, etc.).
  5. Consider connecting directly to the internet, rather than using a wireless connection.
  6. Clear your computer's cache before beginning the program.
  7. When you open AlcoholEdu or Haven make sure it is in its own window and not within a frame of your school portal or email client.
  8. Do not use the "BACK" button on your browser while you are taking the program.
  9. You may log in and out of the course at the end of each section. DO NOT log out until you click "next" button or your answers will not be saved.
