Common interface elements

Because we know that common conventions make things easier for everybody to remember and manipulate, we use a set of common visual symbols throughout Chamilo. These symbols might stand alone representing an action, or be coupled with another symbol representing the object of the action.

Below are listed some of the most commonly used symbols on the platform:



The pencil tool allows the updating of a specific piece of information or content

The cross tool allows for the deletion of a specific piece of information or content

The eye tool allows you to change the visibility of a piece of information/ content

The yellow star marker on any icon symbolizes the creation of a new resource

A blue right arrow generally means move things or insert things into others

A blue left arrow generally means go back (like the back button in your browser).

A blue arrow pointing down generally means download some file or data.

A blue arrow pointing upwards generally means upload some file or data.
