Using Bookmarks within a Course

You can bookmark as many pages as you wish in a Calypso course.

Simply click the blue ‘Bookmark this Page‘ at the top of the page you wish to bookmark.  After you add a bookmark, ‘Bookmark this Page‘ changes to ‘Bookmarked‘ and a bookmark indicator appears in the unit navigation bar at the top of the course page.

To view your bookmarked pages, click on the course ‘Home‘ tab at the top of the course. You will see a list of Course Tools on the righthand side of this screen.  Select ‘Bookmarks‘ to view a list of all bookmarked pages.

For a detailed view of how bookmarks work you may wish to review the edX help center here.

Calypso Continuing Education™ courses provide questions designed to test the student’s mastery of the learning objectives and reinforce the student/learners retention. To ensure students understand the important information supplied during the courses, quizzes are administered at the end of each chapter and an exam at the end of the course.* All of the quizzes and exam are designed to meet the following criteria:

  • The conditional quizzes at the end of most chapters prevent the student from moving forward to the next chapter until they have demonstrated sufficient mastery of the subject;
  • The quizzes and exam contain a sufficient number of questions with a revolving pool of questions that are designed to test the student’s mastery of the subject matter and reinforce the learning process;
  • All questions both individually and collectively, test at a difficulty level appropriate to measure student achievement of the stated course learning objectives;
  • Successful completion of the examination(s) requires the student to answer a minimum of 70% of the questions correctly;
  • Examination questions are written in a clear and unambiguous manner; and,
  • The examinations are not proctored, but appraisers are required to complete an affidavit attesting they are the individuals accessing the course and completing all quizzes and exams.

* In those states where an exam is not required for accreditation, the exams have been disabled.


Upon the completion of each course the system will generate a printable/savable certificate in PDF (Adobe) format.

To generate multiple certificates for additional states please enter the license number and state name into the proper fields in your student account. Provided the course is complete, certificates will generate automatically using the added information when you re-open your course.

You can print and/or save your certificate as many times as you wish.



Multiple Certificates

Additional state certificates are available for each state that you are licensed in at no additional cost.
