Assigning Credits to Courses

Sometimes, being considered proficient in a role requires a specified number of credits within a predetermined time frame. In Schoox, you are able to set up types of credits, and then create rules that determine success for those credit types.

Specifically, you can create types of credits, and associate them with a course, or a job, in a way that someone would know that a number of specific course credits should be acquired within a period of time. Moreover, you have the option to create lifetime-credits (that will not expire).

For example, “SEO Expert” could be a credit type. You can specify that a Unit manager who wants to be a SEO expert should have ten credits by the end of the year and that he can acquire them by taking courses of a specific category in your academy. To do so, you should associate each course with the relevant amount of credits and types of credits that it should have.

Let’s take the procedure step by step. Credit types and rules must be defined before you will be able to assign credits.

Create Types

First, you need to create Credit Types for your academy. To do so, navigate to your Admin tab from the upper navigation menu and select Credits. Under Credits, select Create Types. Read also:  Creating Credit Types

Create Rules

After creating the types, select Create Rules from the same panel. Read Also:  Creating Credit Rules

Course Panel

You can specify the types and number of credits for each course from the course panel.

To do so, navigate to the appropriate course. Select Training Admin in the workspace launcher. Under Manage Training on the left, select Courses.


After selecting the desired course, select General Details.

Scroll down on this page, until you see the Credits section. You can choose to connect your Course with up to five Credits. Add a credit, select the type and number of that type this course is worth, and whether or not it should appear on the course certificate. To add another credit just click the Add Credit button again.

Save at the bottom of the page when finished.

Credits Dashboard

You can track the number of completions per employee on a separate dashboard.

Select the Team workspace. Under My Team's Dashboard on the left, select Credits.  


Here, you can see the percentage of completions per job. Select Details to filter to see how each individual is doing.
