1. What is the eLearning program?
The Gift of Motherhood eLearning program is a flash-based online book that will
allow you to understand all aspects of pregnancy.
2. What do I need in order to view the book?
You’ll need the most recent version of Adobe Flash, a fast internet connection
(DSL, Cable or other broadband) and Adobe Reader. You’ll also need a computer
with sound and speakers or headphones to hear the audio.
3. How do I use it?
Read the eBook just like you would a traditional book – click on the edge of the
book to turn the page. Also, be sure to click on all of the icons to learn more.
Some icons open a movie or animation, others give you added information. If you
see a word in green, you can move your mouse over it to learn the definition.
4. What if I’m having difficulty with the eBook?
First, make sure your internet connection is working by visiting some other
websites. Then, make sure you have the newest version of Adobe Flash. You may
need to uninstall the previous version of Flash before you install the new version.
For instructions on how to uninstall Flash, visit their support site here.
5. What if I can’t see anything?
It may take a few minutes for the program to load. When internet access is slow,
the eBook may load more slowly than normal. If, after a several minutes, nothing
appears, try restarting your computer.
6. What if the videos don’t work?
Give the videos a moment to load and make sure you have the latest version of
Flash. If it still doesn’t work, try restarting your computer.
