Timer eLearning Widget

This widget allows adding a timer to a learning course.

You can start, stop, and reset the timer directly in the learning module as needed. The timer can count up and down, and can stop automatically if needed. The values are pushed into variables, allowing you to build learning interactions that use the timer. One timer can be reset and reused multiple times throughout the learning module.
