Is it possible to create a certificate with visibility hidden and make it activity dependent on a Lesson.
I try but if the certificate is visible the student can get the certificate, (even if dependent on a lesson)
If the certificate is not visible the student at the end of the lesson click on the certificate link but the message is sorry you can not access this activity at this moment.
Maybe i am missing some step in the lesson or certificate configuration!?.
Thank´s in advance
If a lesson has such a non-member component, it might not get backed up. So if the server crashes and lessons have to be loaded from backups, all your certificate non-activities may be gone.
Any code which selects based on the course's ID might find 11 topics. But code which manipulates the number of defined topics won't see the 11th topic.
I was just congratulating myself on finding a simple but effective solution to linking to hidden items, but found I was beaten to it by a couple of weeks
Anyway, I thought I'd test the backup and restore using this system and it seems to work fine for me. That is ALL items were backedup whether they were in a visible section or not.
I hope you guys find this useful. Incidentally, does anyone know whether it is possible to make a certificate dependent on ANY 3 out of 10 lessons (for example)? This would be extremely useful to me, so any kind of information on this would be greatly appreciated.
I'm relatively new to Moodle and with regards to this topic, I am trying to get the same result. I have tried to use the instruction the Lesson Dependency trick 1 from Certificate module documentation, which says;
- Create a Certificate activity. Hide it.
- Create a lesson. We will call it "Certificate Qualification". This is the lesson that needs to be passed to get a certificate. We might add questions to this lesson as a means to automatically determine that student qualifies for a certificate.
- Create another lesson. We will call it "Certificate Gateway". In lesson settings make it dependent upon the "Certificate Qualification". For example we might say a student must answer 80% of the questions correctly. Still in lesson setting go to the link to activity setting and link it to Certificate.
Is there a setting or something that I have missed? It is important that the student can't see the activity, because it is not grade dependent.
