What if I forget my password?
Remember, E-learning@Tees uses your username and password. So if you forget your account details, you can reset your password by answering the security questions that you set when you created your account.
Reset your password through the Password Change Suite
I have just changed my password using the Password Change Suite but still can't access some University systems with the new password. Why?
Once you've changed your password, it will take about ten minutes to synchronise across all University systems.
I get a ‘No authentication credentials were provided with the request’ error when I enter my username and password. What should I do?
This error is caused by an incorrect security setting on your computer. E-learning@Tees needs to be able to execute scripts on your computer to function. To activate scripts in Internet Explorer you need to:
- go to the Tools menu, select Internet Options, and click on the Security Tab
- click on the ‘Internet’ zone icon (the globe) at the top of the screen
- click on the Custom Level button at the bottom of the screen
- scroll down the page until you find the Scripting section and make sure that Active Scripting is enabled - E-learning@Tees needs scripting to be turned for it to work correctly. However, if you are concerned about this setting, you can change it back to the previous setting when you finish using E-learning@Tees.
- try out the Browser Check tool on the Help tab to see if anything else is wrong
When I log on I get a ‘challenge token null’ error and then I have to log on for a second time. Why is this?
This is usually caused if you use a bookmark or favourite to access E-learning@Tees and the login screen (where you enter your username and password) is bookmarked instead of the front page. If you use a bookmark to access E-learning@Tees make sure it goes to E-learning@Tees.tees.ac.uk and no other page.
