Certificates will indicate mastery or completion of instructional content, not just instructional progress like the ebadges. Certificates will be earned as the learner reaches instructional benchmarks. These certificates can be downloaded and printed, saved and emailed. They will also be included in the Certificates Report available to administrators and facilitators. The type and number of certificates will be different for each course because the instructional design and learning objectives are different for each tool. Learners can access their certificates by choosing CERTIFICATES on the top of the dashboard. Administrators and facilitators can access the Certificates Report from the Reports link at the top of the dashboard.
