New plugin: Download Certificates

This week one more nice plugin was added to the Moodle plugins database i.e. Download Certificates which displays all the previously issued certificates without having to go into each course to view them. You will also be able to download the certificates directly without having to go into the course themselves.


The download certificates block also works for courses that needs to be archived but still want students to be able to download the certificate. The block displays the course name, grades, unique codes and issue date. The report page will also display the direct download link to each of the certificates.

The certificate module is required for this plugin to work. In order for this plugin to work you need to make sure the “save certificates” is set to Yes under the certificate issue options.

Currently the version released is compatible for Moodle 2.7 which can be downloaded from

Thanks Manieer Chhettri for sharing such a nice plugin with the Moodle community.
