    The HELP button in the left navigation menu is super important.

    1- MOVE IT UP, inline with the other buttons!! (so people can see it easily).

    2- Set the fly-out menu to open top & left, matching the Account and Courses menus.


    Users won’t know to use the Help button if they can’t see it.

    Consistency is a sign of quality.


    Now, Help TOO LOW:                                                Improvement: Move Help UP in-line; menu opens top left:
