This article is about the new JUNO learning management system (LMS). If you don’t see these features on your site, your platform still uses the legacy JUNO courses.

You can add course certificates to reward learners for passing courses.

Before you begin

  • Open the course editor to follow these instructions.

  • Remember to click Save at the top of the page before going to a different tab in the editor. Otherwise, you’ll lose your changes.

Who can edit certificates?

About course certificates

A course certificate is a static image that acts like a digital piece of paper. When learners take and pass a course with a certificate attached, they earn and can download the certificate. If they fail, they do not see the certificate at all.

A certificate isn’t required in order for the platform to record that learners passed and earned course credit, but you can use it as additional proof if you would like.

See Edit course grading settings for a complete guide to course and lesson grading.

Course certificates are not associated with Continued Education (CE) credits on the platform.

Learners view and download the certificate at the end of the course.

Add a certificate

You can add a unique certificate to each course. For the course name to be on the certificate, it must be part of the image.

  1. Go to the Course Info tab.

  2. Under Rules, turn on Reward certificate upon completion.

  3. Add a Certificate Image in the grey box that appears.

  4. Save your changes at the top of the page.

Image size: Recommend 800 × 450 px (w × h)

Small image file sizes help your site load faster. Follow these specifications:

Image file size: Below 200 KB unless otherwise specified.
Image file type: .jpg unless otherwise specified. This helps reduce the file size. If you need a transparent background, use .png.

In the course info tab, 'reward certificate upon completion' is turned on and a 'congratulations' image is uploaded below it.

Adding a course certificate.

Change the certificate image

Drag and drop a new image onto the existing image to replace it. Or select the existing image to open the file selector.
