I received an error message when attempting to launch a course, or the course won’t load and shows a buffering screen what should I do?

Below are common causes for course errors and buffering screens:

  • Courses are published to be completed in one sitting. Starting a course and resuming even two hours later will affect progress. The course will not allow you to resume from where you left off, and instead start from the beginning again. Employees should anticipate finishing the course in one sitting
  • Your web browser is outdated. You must use the current version or one version prior
  • Using an unsupported browser like Microsoft Edge. Use Mozilla Firefox , Chrome, or Safari if you are a Mac user
  • Moving through the course too quickly. Clicking through slides too quickly before the content has had time to play through will cause a course to glitch and affect your progress
  • Autoplay is not enabled. Follow Allow autoplay instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay

Please include screenshots whenever you encounter an error so we may troubleshoot the issue accordingly.

How soon can I access my Online Learning Account?

NOTE: Employees should not be completing any orientation or onboarding activities until they are an employee of Washington State University. Further information regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act regulations for training time can be found below.

Only current WSU employees (including student employees) have access:

  • New employees receive access to their online learning account after their hire action is successfully completed within Workday.
  • An enabled Network ID/Password is required to access your Online Learning Account.  For assistance, visit www.wsu.edu/NID or contact the IT Help Desk at (509) 335-4357.
  • New learner accounts are created by bulk upload of employee data from their Workday employee record. If the Workday record is incomplete, a new learner account cannot be created. Please check with your supervisor, HR Partner, or Area HR Assistant/Consultant if you are not able to access your account after one week.
  • If you are still unable to access your account, contact hrstraining@wsu.edu for assistance.
  • Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) an employee does not have to paid for training time only if all 4 of the following criteria are met:
    • Attendance is outside of the employee’s regular working hours;
    • The employee’s attendance is voluntary;
    • The course, lecture, or meeting is not directly related to the employee’s job; and;
    • The employee does not perform any productive work during the training.
  • If any of these 4 criteria are not met, then the training time must be treated as work time. This means the employer must pay for the time and must include the training time in total hours worked when determining overtime pay.
  • If an employer requires that an employee attends the training, the training will not be considered voluntary. In addition, if the employee believes they would be subject to adverse action, such as poor performance ratings or demotion, if they fail to attend the training, it may not be considered voluntary even though the employer claims it is.
  • If the training helps an employee handle her job more effectively, it will be considered directly related to the employee’s job. Alternatively, if the training prepares the employee for a new job or additional skill, it will not be directly related to her job.

I completed a live course recently. Why isn’t my Activity updated?

Our HRS LOD team and other WSU Course instructors prioritize manually reconciling attendance and closing out sessions within 10-15 business days, either by using the completed attendance roster from the instructor or the Zoom report for the session. Once a session is closed out, the course completion date will be accurately reflected in your training record.
