Create and award credit

Now, courses can award credit to learners who complete the course. Admin can also manually award credit to learners. Admin and instructors create and define credit types and units.

Credit is made up of three components: “Amount,” “Type,” “Units.”
For example, an association course could award “3 [Amount] CE [Type] hours [Units].”
