The Accredible platform lets you automatically create, manage, and distribute digital certificates or open badges directly from your Moodle instance.

Digital certificates and badges help maximize the value from your training or certification program.

Not Just a PDF

Create amazing certificate designs with complete control over the design and branding.  Or alternatively, create digital badge designs with our badge designer to recognize your learners' achievements. 

Certificate design editor in use

Digital certificates and badges are more secure than PDFs - their authenticity can be verified at any time on their own unique URL. They are more accessible and share-able via social media, directing interested viewers back towards your learners' achievements and your course information. Track recipient engagement to see shares, additional traffic to your webpage. And, still allow students to save and print a PDF for their wall at home.

Issue them automatically based on activity completion or final grade in Moodle and update their appearance at any time afterwards.

    Hi Ryan

    Should this work with Moodle 3.02? When installing the plugin I am getting issues from the plugin manager - it's advising there are dependencies on assignment upload which is not available? This is a completely clean version of Moodle 3.02.

    Any guidance appreciated!

    Hi Andrew!
    I just tried a clean 3.0.2-1 installation and didn't have any issues.
    I'll follow up with a private message and hopefully we can debug it.

    Hi Ryan,

    You guys over at Accredible are awesome. I see this plugin is even cooler now, as it can access the fancy certificates I've already created using design templates. This is going to make life easier for me. Thank you very much for putting this together and sharing the code with the community!!!

    Note: I'm on Moodle 3.0.4+ (Build: 20160623) with pre-existing Accredible cohorts and the install worked without issue.

    - Chris

    Just to add quickly:

    Installing the plugin pulled in all my existing certificates and mapped them to current users. This is amazing.

    On thing that would be really cool is if I could select an "Assignment" module for use with the "Auto-issue criteria: by activity completion" function. The courses I run include quizzes but then also a final assignment that must be completed in order to complete the certification. Right now, I only see the option to select quizzes, but it is quite possible I'm overlooking something obvious.

    Thanks again, I'm really happy with this plugin it made my day. smile

    Thanks for the speedy response. Accredible v1.4.11 installs successfully running Moodle 3.4.1+

    Was able to get it installed but I get a 500 error when I try and save the activity created for it. Just a generic 500 error page. Any ideas on why?

    Please can you screenshot the error and email it to and let me know what your Moodle version is?

    Hi when will the plugin be ready for Moodle 3.6
  • Wed, Mar 6, 2019, 11:32 PM
    Be careful with buying Accredible, because it is less powerful than the free Custom Certificate plugin, it is not possible to pick up any field from Moodle, so if you use Moodle and you are looking for something more powerful than Custom Certificate this is not the option you are looking for.
