Note: Only Learning Experiences of the type Undertake an Online Course set to Branching, Linear, Non Linear or Classic can use certificates.
When a user completes a course type learning experience, they are presented with a completion message on the course home page that congratulates them for finishing.
However, Stream offers you the ability to take this a step further with the addition of a course completion certificate, awarding them with a digital certificate (as a PDF) that they can download and take with them as proof of completing your course.
Adding a Certificate
Admin Area > Your Learning Experience > Settings > Certificate
Begin by uploading your certificate to Stream using the Browse button to go into your file browser.
Once you have chosen and uploaded your certificate, you are then able to view it to see if the auto generated Username and Completion Date text are in the correct position.
In the settings below you can adjust the font size of the text, their position from the top of the page and their alignment. If not centred, the distance from the left side of the page can be set.
Note: If you don't want to show the Completion Date on the certificate, you can turn this off by unticking the Display checkbox under the completion date settings.
Viewing Your Certificate
When a user has completed a course the course's front page will display the completion message, set in the Completion Options box below Certificate, and a link to view their certificate.
You can also view your certificate in the admin area course settings by clicking the View Certificate link to the right hand side of the Browse button (shown below.)
To remove the certificate, tick the checkbox Remove Certificate located below the browse button and then press the SAVE button at the bottom of the panel.
