The Custom Certificate plugin provides a rich canvas for customizable certificates you can make for your students. After the completion of a course, the student can access his certificate and download it.

  1. Thank, are certificates not available at all with Moodle Cloud or is this a plug-in I can get if I pay for the Service through a partner? This is an indispensable feature for me and I wanted to trial it before investing in it. Is there another Moodle that I can use this feature in to make sure it does exactly what I need it to do?

  2. Ah, I wouldn’t know the process for doing this…I’m new to Moodle and thought that what was there was there. So I can add the plug-in that you shared with me to Moodle? Would you happen to have a step-by-step for doing this?
