8. Getting a Course Certificate or Badge#
Your course might be set up to issue certificates as evidence that you successfully completed the course. Different types of certificates might be available for courses you take. For information about the certificates that your course offers, contact the course team or institution that created your course.
In addition, you might be able to earn badges for achievements such as completing a course or a series of courses, or for participating in course activities. The badges that you can earn depend on how badges have been set up for the course platform that you are taking a course on.
Some courses issue certificates, which you can access from your dashboard.
