Note: This feature is only available in institutional courses. Personal courses that are manually created by course instructors do not have this feature.
Part1: Institution admin sets up the course completion certificate
Step1: Institution admin logs in CN Channel. Clicks “Badges, Certificates, & Transcripts” -- “Certificates”—“Manage Auto-Awarded Certificates”. Then clicks the pencil icon.
Step2: On this certificate template, only two fields are required: “Upload Institution Logo or Seal” and
“Upload Signature”. Upload these two items and make other needed edits. Once done, click SAVE.
Here is an example of completed course completion certificate. User's name, course name and certificate issue date will be automatically filled out when the certificate is awarded.
Part2: Instructor sets up course completion conditions
Step1: On the course page, instructor clicks the gear icon next to the green Tasks tab. From the dropdown menu, choose “Course Completion Settings”.
Step2: On the following pop-up window, the instructor first sets up course completion conditions (see 1). Then check the box that says “Award Course Completion Certificate...” (see 2). Once complete, click SAVE CONDITIONS.
From now on, once students complete the course and claim completion of course, they will automatically get the course completion certificate. It will be automatically displayed on their CN ePortfolio and be certified.
Institution admins can click the recipient number link from the “Manage Auto-Awarded Certificates” page to download the recipient list in CSV list.
