New Feature: Certificates

I am happy to annouce the release of a new version of Guru, version 2.2.4! In this version, we added a feature that you all have been asking for since day one: Certificates!


Why are Certificates a great idea?

If your potential students know they can get a certificate that will help them get hired or improve their resume, then there is a much better chance that they will sign up for your courses! More students = More cash for you!
