Part of set Moodle Workplace.
Design, issue and verify digital certificates. This plugin is fully compatible with Moodle LMS.

This plugin allows users to create certificate templates on the system and course category levels. Certificate templates can have user fields such as user name, profile picture, etc, and also additional dynamic fields that are added by the issuer (through API).

The built-in interface allows users to issue certificates manually and browse the issued certificates.

A verification code / link / QR code can be added to the certificate template. Certificates can be verified by unauthenticated users even on sites with forced login and no guest access.

Other plugins can depend on this plugin to issue certificates based on some criteria, for example Course certificates (mod_coursecertificate) is an activity module that will automatically issue certificates when the student satisfies the access restrictions. The mod_coursecertificate plugin will send the course name and completion information to the tool_certificate plugin, so if these fields are included in the template, they will be displayed on the certificate.

Moodle WorkplaceThis plugin has been contributed and is maintained by the Moodle Workplace team.

See the documentation page in the Moodle Workplace documentation site for more information. Please note that some of the features described in the documentation might be exclusive to Moodle Workplace.

    So the word "certificate" is turned into a hyperlink in the pdf document, I don't understand how this happens since it is a "text" element, how can I disable it turning into a hyperlink to the course certificate page?

    Hello, I also use this plugin, but font selection is not made in the serial, how can I add Turkish fonts? Turkish Characters seem problematic.

    I have 5 professors for 5 courses, one from each educational institution.
    I want to know if it is possible to create a different certificate for each institution, and a professor does not see the certificate of others.
    Detail: All courses are created by the administrator.
    Is there any way to hide other certificate templates?

    You can place courses and certificates in different course categories. The teacher will only be able to see the certificates in the categories containing the current course

    Hi, Marina
    From what I understand in the tutorial, the certificate is selected by category and subcategory, but I need it to be by course, because each teacher has their course and I wouldn't want a teacher to view the other models than yours.
    It's possible? Where can I find tutorial for this?

    Hello guys. We are using your great plugin in a large Moodle installation for a federal state. Great work. But is there a way to send a certificate not only to the user, but also to one or more stored emails?

    Hello, no, there is no such functionality. If you would like to suggest improvement, you can create an issue in the tracker (link above). You are also welcome to submit a pull request. This is an open-source project. You can also create your own plugin that would listen to the event and send copies of the certificates to the other recepients.

    For anyone that may have this issue of the plugin strings going missing, installing the plugin in the back-end fixes that issue. I wasn't able to install from Moodle front-end no matter how many times i tried. It would just give me [pluginname_....] [modulename] etc etc. If you have access to you moodle folder, just extract into the /admin/tool/ folder.

    Someone has tried more than two electronic signatures on the same document, when I use two signatures it happens that it only accepts the last signature entered and not the previous ones
