The first item, A Video Introduction: Why Use CAP?, has a checkbox and is a required activity. The checkbox is checked, indicating that the activity was completed. The second item, Assignment-Your Organization and CAP Alerts, has a checkbox and is also required. It is not checked, indicating that the activity still needs to be completed.

Navigating the Course Site
There are two main areas for reliably navigating this course site:
1. The navigation links near the top of the page
Clicking the link "CAP Basics" will always return you to the main course page.
2. When on an activity page, locate links along the bottom of the page and a "Jump to..." menu. The links go to the previous and next activity. The "Jump to..." menu lists all activities in the course; selecting one will link to that activity.
It's recommended to access the activities from the main course page and to complete each activity in the order they are listed.
Navigating within a Lesson
Within a Lesson activity, use the navigation buttons to move between the Lesson's pages.
