Creating Rich Personalised Certificates with Shika


Isn’t it a great feeling when you are rewarded and recognised when you complete a milestone or a goal? Online courses are no different. In fact, for online courses, recognition is even more important as they lack the physical touch points and personal motivation that is usually part of ‘In Person’ learning.  Low completion rates are the biggest bane of online learning. Rewards and recognition is a great way to fight this.

Personalised certificates are just one of the many features that Shika offers to let you reward your users.

A certificate is much more than a piece of paper. It is a recognition of one’s work and gives a sense of entitlement.They are a great way to showcase your achievements & add to one’s academic and work profile.
