UPDATE: The issue below has been resolved, thanks to the author. This is now in the 'review' category.

Sign-up is required to access this course through the canvas system, and the sign-up process does not work because the applicant must check a box that says "I am not a robot", and the system does not allow you to check that box. As a result, it is not possible to sign up, to review the material, or anything.

There was a glitch on one widget that I thought was corrected...let me know if there is still a problem and if so, which one of the widgets you tried to access. Sorry for the problem.
