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.

The wait is over! We are super excited to announce the release of Shika 1.2 which brings Bootstrap 3 support, User Hierarchy awareness and a plethora of reporting enhancements with TJ reports integration. Between TJ Reports and Hierarchy awareness it is now possible for managers to view reports of a user reporting to them. What’s more, the reporting now also understands the concept of ownership and allows Course creators to view reports about the courses created by them.

Please note that this is a major release and involves a migration which is however painless. Also since the layouts have been revamped to support Bootstrap 3, any overrides you have done might need some rework. On installation do not forget to click the ‘Fix’ buttons on both Shika and Jlike Components. Detailed instructions are given in the release notes.
