CREATE OR UPDATE A CERTIFICATE


It's easy to add a certificate to an EasyCampus course. You can align your certificate to certain activities such as a quiz or a SCORM object so that it is not generated unless a passing grade is achieved.


Before You Begin


  • Understand how to turn Editing off and on. If you don’t know how to do this, use the step guide titled Edit a Page to help you.
  • Determine if your course already has a certificate. If so, it will most likely have a tab called Certificate.
  • Determine which activities, if any, you want to link to your certificate.

Begin


If you need to add a new certificate:

  • Display the course into which you want to add a certificate.
  • Make sure editing is turned on
  • Click the Manage Activities tab.
Manage Activities tab
  • Select the Certificate activity from the Add an Activity drop-down box at the top of the screen. A form will display to help you set up your certificate.

If your course already has a certificate:

  • Locate and click the name of the certificate on the course page.
  • In the upper-right corner of the page, click the Update This Certificate button. The Certificate form will display.
  • Fill in or update the fields on the form.
  • If necessary, type a name for the certificate.

Example: Certificate of Achievement

  • Scroll down to the section titled "Locking Options". If you want, select the name of the first activity you want to link to the certificate.

Example: Quiz 1

  • Select the required grade for certificate reception from the list box on the right.

Example: 80%

  • If you need more than one activity to be linked, click the Add Another Linked Activity button and repeat the process above.
  • Fill in the rest of the optional fields on the page as necessary. For example, if you want, select a watermark or a seal for your certificate.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and then click the Save and Return to Course button.

If you are adding a new certificate, you must now add it to a course page. Skip these steps if you are updating an existing certificate.

  • Display the page in which you want to display your new certificate.
  • Locate the drop-down box with "Add Existing Activity" in it. From this box, select the name of your new certificate.
Add Existing Activity drop-down box
  • The certificate will be displayed at the bottom of the middle column. If you want, use the small black arrow icons to move it around the page.

Note: if you need special options like a custom watermark or logo, contact support@educadium.com or open a help ticket. Include the images you need and support will load them onto the campus so you can select them from the appropriate list boxes.
