Frequently Asked Questions
An e-course in an online class. They are simply called “Courses” here on the site. Courses are stored on this website. Each Course is in it’s own private classroom that only people that have registered for the course can access. All videos are pre-recorded and you can watch them at your convenience. All Courses here at JeanneOliver.com have lifetime access (as long as we own and manage JeanneOliver.com).
Yes! Now, let’s break that down. If you came over from our old site on NING, then you have migrated over and already have an account here at JeanneOliver.com. It is with that login information that you will need to login (see navigation menu)
*If you are already logged in, the navigation menu will say log out instead.
If you do not have an account yet, when you join a course, even a free one, it will auto generate into your account and you will receive an email at the email account you used with your account information.
Note that this will also happen if your first thing is to purchase something in the shop. Everything is under one account here. You can read through the FAQS tabs to learn more about accessing your account.
You ALWAYS have to be logged in to access ANY of your content. Including courses, settings, store purchases.
*Note: You MUST be Logged in to view the content on Your Courses page.
If you can’t access the course make sure you have completed your purchase and received the confirmation email. Check your SPAM folder in your email application to be sure & also if it is in SPAM, please mark it “Not SPAM” so it does not go there next time.
If you are on a course page you will find the lessons toward the bottom of the page. If you have purchased that course, you can click the lesson title to access each individual lesson and be taken to it. Again, you MUST be logged in to access the content. If you are not logged in when you click on a lesson, or have not purchased the course, it will simply lead you back to that course home page. Even if it is a FREE course. Even Free courses must go through the process of joining.

This is a very big site, with a lot to offer! We hope you will click around these pages and become familiar. It all makes sense after you peruse around! Thank you!
At the present time all new courses are being offered with downloadable videos. We are currently working backward through our library to enable this for every video in every course. The sidebar on the main course page will show you if that course’s videos are downloadable.
*All high-quality online courses are offered at 1080p but we also give you other choices based on your internet connection. If you watch in full screen and experience buffering click the gear in the lower right-hand corner of the video and then click on quality. Please choose a lower resolution like 720p, 540p or 360p based upon your internet. This should resolve your buffering right away.
We suggest you join some of our Free Courses first and try out the videos.

The first lesson of every course is that course’s “Course Community.” (except in free single video courses, which do not have one) This is the only lesson in every course that has an open comment section. All Course Communities have the same look but have the info for that particular course. Like the link for that course’s Private Facebook Group along with the password you will need to submit when asking to join the facebook group. This is the only place that information will be. We realize everyone is not on Facebook and wanted to provide a place for you to feel free to share comments, questions, etc in the comment section. There is not a way to upload and share images on the site. That is why we have private facebook groups for each course. If it is a new course, the teacher will respond to questions posted in the Course Community, otherwise a member of our team will respond. Be sure to follow the replies. There is also a quick link “Tech Questions & FAQS” button that will lead you to this page.
*Please Note: When requesting to join the associated Facebook Group for a course, you must completely answer any questions that are asked. The specific course password is always found in the Course Community Lesson. Otherwise, you will not be approved and you will need to resubmit. This is simply the only way we can keep up with requests. You can click to close this alert. Thank you! Team JO
To keep up with being able to offer you the quality of courses, along with keeping the demands down on our team, we made the decision not to offer a forum here on the site. Instead, we have the Course Communities (See that FAQ tab for info) and the Private Facebook Groups. Each Course here (Except the Free One Video Courses) have a Course Community as the first lesson. This lesson is always open for comments and questions!
*Please Note: When requesting to join the associated Facebook Group for a course, you must completely answer the 3 questions that are asked. The specific course password is always found in the Course Community Lesson. Otherwise, you will not be approved and you will need to resubmit. This is simply the only way we can keep up with requests. You can click to close this alert. Thank you! Team JO

At the very top of the “Courses Home” page there are buttons for you to click and find courses by:
Artistry, Journey, Teacher and Free. (each of those pages has buttons to search as well) Once you are on one of the Search Pages, simply click on the category you want to come up. Then start perusing and clicking on a course that you want more information about.
Or you might end up on a course page from a direct link that was shared with you via email, facebook, etc. Once you click over to any and all Course Pages you will see the yellow button below throughout the page to click and take the course.
The purchase buttons are located in 3 prominent places on each course page. We did not want you to miss it! They always look like the one above. Click on one of them and then it will take you through the store to purchase the course. Note that even FREE courses and FREE videos go through this same process. This is so everything is connected to your account. Always login first if you have an account already so you keep all of your content under your one account with us.
*You will receive an email from JeanneOliver.com after you purchase and that email will have instructions for you.
*Note that once you go through the process you will no longer see the yellow button on any course that you purchased. This is so you do not re-purchase the same course. A good thing! But! If you are NOT logged in and come to the site, you will see the yellow purchase buttons as the site does not recognize you already purchased it. We are here for you!
*Read through the FAQS here on this page for more info on where your courses are for you to return to etc.
The same way you access all courses. You must click on the Yellow Button that says, “Take This Course.” It will take you through the shop and you will enter your information but there will be no charge. You can search for Free Courses here.
