Certificates are course specific and prove that you have completed a course. They confirm your success and accomplishments, help to build your identity as a person who does not give in. Some certificates may require you to send a video of you playing a certain piano piece to your online teacher. The exact conditions are on the main page of every course.
You earn points for completed piano courses only. It means that these points reflect the experience and skill level you have in playing the piano. The main page of every course shows you exactly how many points you get after completing a course. Because some of the material is accessible only with a certain amount of points you can use points to get exclusive content. Check how many points you currently have on your profile header. Other people can see your points too.
You earn credits (1 credit = $1) for social activities (e.g. building your social network, being active on the forums) and completing piano courses. The main page of every course shows you exactly how many credits you get after completing a course. Use credits to buy piano courses and tickets to webinars. You can choose credits as your payment method at the checkout. Your current credit balance is viewable under the “Profile” tab and on your profile header. “Credits History” tab shows you all the credits you have received and transactions you have made. Other people cannot see your credit balance or history.
