The course elements provide pre-shaped pedagogic bricks that can be used as ressources in a course. They behave like labels and are rendered in the course sequence (not like resources in separate content).
Course elements provide high semantic level objects that are commonly used on written learning content, such as "Important, local goals, reminder, example, work description, soluce elements, tips and tricks, see also"...
Contact points elements can clearly mark a location in a course where teacher ans learners should meet some way (face to face, phone call, online synchronous session, mail, other...)

You will be assigned an MCCC-certified mentor-assessor to help guide you through this process. When you pass the certification you are given a code that lets you (or anyone else you give it to) download your personalised certificate as a PDF from this site.
