This topic describes how to complete several end-of-course tasks.
For more information, see the following other topics about certificates.
As you prepare for the end of your course, you can send learners a course farewell email message.
To assign a final grade to each learner enrolled in a course, you generate grades after the course end date and time have passed. For more information, see Generate a Grade Report for All Learners in a Course.
The learner’s final grade and the grading configuration you set in Studio determine whether the learner has earned a certificate for the course.
Typically, you generate and issue certificates after the course ends for instructor-paced courses, or at specific intervals for self-paced courses.
For self-paced courses, you can also allow learners to request and download certificates before they have completed all of the course materials. To receive these on-demand certificates, learners must have completed enough of the course, and with a high enough grade, to qualify for a certificate.
For most courses, you work with your edX partner manager to issue certificates. For instructor-paced courses, you must assign final grades before you can issue certificates. For more information, contact your edX partner manager.
You can allow your learners to receive on-demand certificates as soon as they qualify for a certificate in your course. This process has two steps.
For information about how learners request certificates, see On-Demand Certificates.
If your course offers on-demand certificates, we encourage you to include this information on your course About page, on the Home page, and in communication with your learners.
To allow learners to request on-demand certificates, you modify the Enable Student- Generated Certificates setting on the Instructor Dashboard.
View the live version of your course.
In the LMS, select Instructor, and then select Certificates.
Select Enable Student-Generated Certificates.
When they have qualified, learners can request their certificates from the Progress page.
To prevent learners from requesting certificates, select Disable Student-Generated Certificates.
To allow learners to download on-demand certificates, you modify the Certificates Display Behavior advanced setting in Studio.
