Certificates can be awarded to your learners at any point within a course. For example, after completing all modules in a course or partway through a course (if you want learners to have certificates for multiple milestones within one course, for instance).
Each certificate is attached to a course as a module.
Follow these steps to include a Certificate module in a course:
- Complete the usual steps to create a course.
- Click Add Module in the section of the course where you want learners to be awarded the certificate.
- Click Certificate.
- Give the module a title.
- Give the certificate a title (this title appears on the downloaded certificate).
- Upload the certificate background ensuring that the file is in PNG or JPG format and is exactly 1000 pixels wide and 1400 pixels high.
- Click Submit.
The certificate is attached to the course and will be awarded to learners when they reach the module.
For information about adding a module to a course, see 'Adding modules to courses'.
You can view all certificates awarded to a learner on the CERTIFICATES tab of their profile page. To access this page, locate and click the learner's name on the People page.
