Claro offers a full reference/citation system. The three main components that make up this system are:
Reference: Provides learners with details about the source of your information—things like the title of a work, name of the authors and/or publishers, date of publication, etc.
Citation: Citations are the link between text on your page and the Reference. Learners use these to view the reference information. Claro uses a number-alphabet citation system. When you assign a citation to a portion of text on a page, the citation is represented by a number that is linked to a chosen reference from the Reference Manager. Multiple citations of the same reference are represented alphabetically (1a, 1b, 1c). When a learner uses their mouse to hovers over or click the number, the reference information is displayed. Note that removing a citation from your course content merely removes the clickable link to the reference, the reference itself remains in the Reference Manager.
Bibliography: Provides learners with a complete list of all the references you cited in your course.
