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 and select the Certificate module type.
- 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 more information, see 'Adding modules to a course'.
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 account name on the People page. You can also download all certificates for a course from the Course Insight page.
