This is a great added feature! I'm looking for a way for a Teacher to complete the Certificate activity for a student so that the notifications that are set in the Certificate activity are acted upon. In the Certificate activity settings > Issue options > upon Teacher completion of the activity (in the Activity completion report) The email that is set in the Certificate activity, Issue options "Email others" addresses, that address receives an email, and the "Delivery" set to "email", means the user will receive the Certificate in their email.
The only other way of doing this, that I know of, is to Login-as the user and click on the Certificate.
Any alternative is welcome. Basically looking for a way for teachers to complete a course for students, where the teacher and student receive email notification upon that completion, and that the Certificate is made available, and/or emailed to the student, by this same action.
