Global settings for Finish screen & Certificates
We’ve just released an exciting update that will allow you to ‘set-and-forget’ all of the settings related to learners finishing a course. From today, you can configure the following globally:
- The issuing of Certificates
- Your Certificate design
- Course Finish screen states
Issuing of Certificates
If you are currently issuing certificates for every course in your workspace, you’ll be happy to know that you can now set the issuing of certificates to ON by default. By doing this, every new course you create will automatically be set to issue certificates.
The global configuration can be overridden for each individual course, so if there are some courses that you don’t want to use them, you can set them to OFF by clicking the Override button from the Finish screen inside your course, and then unchecking the ‘Issue certificate’ button.
Note that the issuing of certificates is set to ON by default.
You can configure a global Certificate design that can be applied to all courses of your courses. To set this up, head over to the Customize > Certificate design tab. From here, you can set up your certificate, and it will be used as the default course certificate for every new course you create. If you make any changes, these changes will be reflected in any course that is using the global design.
Once again, if you want to create a unique certificate design for a particular course, you can do this for each individual course by clicking the override button from the certificate designer inside a course.
Course Finish screen states
As a trainer, you can tailor the course finish experience for your learners using the 'Finish Screen' tab inside a course. Although you may have used the same message for every course, you were required to set it up every time. With this release, you can set it up once, and it will be applied to all new courses going forward.
You can tailor the finish experience to suit each possible finish state on your course. Depending on what modules you have in your course, there are 3 possible finish states:
- The learners completes the course and passes
- The learner finishes the course and fails (only available if you have a quiz or assignment module)
- The learner finishes the course but is waiting for a trainer to grade an assignment (only available if you have an assignment module)
You can override the global configuration on a course-by-course basis if you want by clicking the ‘Override’ button from the Finish screen inside a course.
In addition to all of these great changes, we've updated the finish screen editor inside the course builder to include inline editing.
