The course certificate module provides an opportunity for learners to celebrate achievements by obtaining certificates.

It allows you to choose from different certificate templates which will automatically display user data such as full name, course, etc.

Users will be able to download a PDF copy of the certificate themselves by accessing this activity, and there are options to send a PDF copy to them by email automatically.

If the template used on this activity contains a QR code, users will be able to scan it to validate their certificates.

The Course certificate plugin works together with the Certificate manager plugin (tool_certificate). The Certificate manager plugin has to be installed, it provides the API and UI for designing the certificate templates on system and course category level.

    How does this relate to the existing mod_customcert plugin? Was it developed in partnership with the team? Is there an upgrade path?

    It seems very odd that Moodle would develop and release a plugin that would 'compete' with such an established, high quality, plugin.

    hi Andrew, there are significant differences in the backend between these plugins, the main one is that tool_certificate defines certificates on system/category levels and not inside of the courses.
    You are welcome to continue using mod_customcert, they by no means conflict with each other.

    we'll be working on the migration tool but I don't have any time estimates for it yet

    I've installed the plugin and wanted to give the rle trainer the right to create his own certificates for a course - doesn't work sad

    no, this is not the purpose of this plugin. You can use mod_customcert for it

    ...alternatively, you can give your trainer role/capability to manage course certificates in the course category

    Hi good moring
    the plugin is fantastic!!
    Does the administrator have the option to download all certificates?
    I do not see the option and it is very useful
    Thank you!

    Hi Marini, thank you. There is no such functionality at the moment but feel free to create an issue in the tracker (the link is above)

    Hi Marina,

    Is there a way to make this happen when the certificate is saved or printed, it gets the actual course name rather than the certificate file name?

    Thanks.

    Remember, there is the ISSUE TRACKER for reporting bugs and suggesting improvements:
    https://tracker.moodle.org/issues/?jql=project%20%3D%20CONTRIB%20AND%20component%20%3D%20%22Set%3A%20Course%20certificate%22
    It will properly notify you when anybody else makes comment on your issue. It is also the best way to reach developers.

    And, Mark, you can actually find there that exactly the same issue has already been created

    Do we have to edit the script to change the date format in the certificate?
  • Tue, Mar 16, 2021, 11:52 PM
    Is there a way to bulk download awarded certificates? - Thanks!

    Hi, Is there a way to add custom fonts to the certificate ?

    Hi Eeman and Brendan, there are not such functionalities but but feel free to create an issue in the tracker (the link is above).
    And Zeid, please have a look at this regarding custom fonts for certificates: https://docs.moodle.org/310/en/Add_fonts_for_embedding

    Hi,
    I installed the "workplace course certificate", however now I cannot access my Moodle (including site admin). It does not let me to go further although the server environment meets all minimum requirements.
    Please advise.
    p.s. I use a theme called Edumy if it helps.
    Regards,
    Farhang
