I understand the Certificate of Completion idea is currently under consideration, but was wondering if anyone has had success with using a free third party tool to generate a certificate, inside a Canvas course? Our hope it to create a Module that students can only enter after completing a set of requirements, and inside the Module is an option to download a basic certificate that includes their name, credits, etc... Any help/advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
This shouldn't require 3rd party support, it should be built in. If Canvas is aimed as a complete learning tool, certificates are an obvious outcome.
Heck, moodle has a plugin freely available to do this that installs easily.
Hi @dave_perry ,
Thanks for your feedback! There is an awesome Feature Request online at the moment which I think would be of interest to you: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2027-certificate-of-completion-generator" modifiedtitle="true".... It would be fantastic if you could up-vote the idea, and provide any additional feedback in the comments section. The more support the better!
@akkaufmann I actually implemented this today and got it working. Really cool concept for doing this. Thanks for sharing.
I know this is a few years old, but I have one question...
Along with the name and course name, is it possible to also pull the module name? We have a course with safety training in it. Each module is a different safety video and quiz in itself and each one doesn't apply to everyone. So you might just be assigned two quizzes of the 12. And I'd like to generate a specific certificate for each module and print the module name on the cert. I'll play around with the custom fields and PHP but was wondering if you knew a way.
