🧾 Certified assignments

On completion of an assignment you can provide your users with a digital certificate. This is emailed out to them. All you need to do is enable certificates on the assignment.
You may also want to add a manual review for the assignment as a whole if you need to review file uploads that form part of the assignment completion. This means that a moderator will need to approve an assignment submission before it is completed. If you reject a submission the users will have the option to re-submit.
