Tips & Tricks

  • Want to indicate specific credits to display for a course? Use the Course ID field to record this information. For example "IS101- CREDIT HOURS 5.0" or simply "5.0 CEUs"

If you are using your own theme you have to put the icon.gif inside a folder called certificate and put in your mod folder image
