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.

    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?

    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.

    Re: Accredible Inc. I still think the same, that Accredible should not even be available in this extensions directory, since it is not possible that it is so basic, it is not able to take basic fields as if the custom certificate plugin does (free), besides the support technical is BAD, with capital letters. The system is not able to generate updated PDF dynamically, too many things that do not work for the Moodle community in this plugin.

    Re: Sergio. We've taken your feature request on board but we don't plan to implement it within the next couple of quarters, I'm sorry that this is disappointing for you. Not every service or product can be a good fit for every user and in our case it seems like we don't have what you're looking for.

    There are a couple of incorrect points in your comment that we'd like to politely clear up. Our platform does indeed generate dynamic PDFs (here's an example and our support satisfaction is consistently above 98% week over week.

    I have looked at all of the documentation and videos and can't seem to find an answer to what seems to me a very simple question: Do the Accredible badges appear on the Moodle profile of the recipient? The shortcoming with built-in Moodle badges is they are only visible in the course context in which they are issued. We want badges that can be issued by completion of a particular course, but then be seen site-wide. Is that something Accredible accomplishes, inside of Moodle?

    Re: Jason. Accredible badges don't appear in the profile today, they are shown as an activity within courses only. They can be embedded using an iFrame if you're able to customize your profile pages?
