From time to time current Wilmette Institute students contact the Institute seeking help to enroll themselves in new courses. Here are some tips from the Registrar that show how to find courses and enroll in them.
The Wilmette Institute has three websites
The Institute operates with 3 websites. The first website listed below is the one designed to help students register for their courses.
1. Public website (wilmetteinstitute.org):— This website has a community learning course schedule. It can be searched by department, or by date. Here’s a screenshot.
2. Online Learning Center (courses.wilmetteinstitute.org):— This is the Institute’s private website, hosted on the Moodle software platform, where you will find your course’s Classroom page. It requires a password to access. When you register you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to log in to the Online Learning Center/Moodle. It can take up to 30 minutes for your account to be activated or updated, so please wait that long after registration before trying to access your course.
Note: You can find a list of courses in the Online Learning Center, but they are not designed to be searchable, and you will not be able to enroll yourself into a course through Moodle because there’s no way to pay the course fee through Moodle.
3. Cvent registration website:— This is where you register and pay for your courses. To get to the registration page for a course, click on the green “Register Now” button to the right of the course page, just below the “Register By” date (see screenshot below). Courses generally remain open for registration for one week after the start of the course. Then the course is automatically removed from the upcoming courses list and the Register Now button disappears. If you have a good reason to want to join the course later than a week after it has started, you may appeal to the Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org). Late registration requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Making changes to your registration
If you need to make a change to your registration, this can be done using the link near the end of your confirmation email, which says: “To modify your registration (including submitting post-registration payments) Click here.” The screenshot below shows the page you will reach when you click through. You will need to provide your confirmation number. Note that you will not be able to change your name or email address, but they can be changed by the Registrar. Email email@example.com or call (847) 733-3466.
