You can create awards that can be shared with others in other courses, or have them restricted to the course and its child org units. If you restrict an award, it can only be added to the course offering in which you create the award and any child offerings of that course.
If you manually add an award, you must specify the criteria required to earn this award. When the award is automatically issued, the release conditions determine if learners meet the criteria.
The award is added to your course awards list.
