LE Type - Dynamic Certificate

*When using the Accord LMS, hovering over information icons displays helpful tips.


This article describes the process to add a Dynamic Certificate as a type of Learning Element to your Catalog.

Frequently these certificates can serve as Certificates of Completion.

Certificates become Dynamic thru the use of Tokens

Dynamic = readily customizable.

Difference between [REF] Tokens and [LE] Tokens

LE Tokens

LE are Learning Elements.

LE tokens are tokens of the current LE.

If you have an LE titled 'Fire Safety' and apply the [LE:Title] token, this token will be replaced with 'Fire Safety'.

REF Tokens

REF Tokens are tokens which are replaced with various values from a referenced LE, which then get configured on a PDF template, usually by pointing the PDF template to a given quiz. 

If you use the token [REF:Tit] on the PDF, it will not use the PDF title, it will use the LE quiz title.
