Certificates Feature: Enhancing Customer Engagement and Professional Development
We're proud to introduce the Certificate Feature in Edtch, a significant stride in recognizing and celebrating educational achievements. This feature is a valuable asset for a wide range of users, including product managers, marketing leaders, educators, and learners, offering a powerful tool to enhance customer loyalty, add value to your primary product, and increase revenue through product certification.
🏆 Personalized Certification: Upon course completion, learners can download a personalized certificate, a digital badge that reflects the skills and knowledge they've gained.
📜 Customization Options: Tailor your certificates to showcase specific achievements and mastery levels. Each certificate is a distinct testament to the learner's journey and accomplishments.
💼 Professional Advancement: Use these certificates to bolster your professional image. They are not just a mark of achievement but also a tool for sharing your accomplishments with employers and your professional network effortlessly.
Here's how it can transform your customer engagement and professional development strategies:
Empower Your Customers: Enhance the expertise of your customers in your products through interactive courses and simulations. This not only educates them but also significantly reduces the workload on your support team.
Standardization of Skills: Implement a standard for certifying the proficiency in operating your product, ensuring consistent knowledge and application among users.
Incentivize Learning: Motivate your customers to delve deeper into your product by offering certification credentials such as 'Product Professional' or 'Product Expert'. This recognition can be a powerful incentive for continued learning and engagement.
Cost-Efficient Training: Optimize your training costs by offering product certification through online exams. This approach makes the certification process more accessible and scalable.
Many of you are familiar with the Page Templates feature, which facilitates the quick creation of standard layouts for e-learning pages. Additionally, the Color & Typography schemes functions were well-received, but they had a limitation – applicability only on a single-page basis. Now, we've expanded and evolved this functionality into Course Themes, enabling you to establish themes across an entire course or even site-wide. Here's how you can easily change the appearance of your course:
Navigate to the 'Course Builder' and click the palette icon to access the 'Theme Editor'.
Preview the built-in themes by clicking on them, then select the one that best suits your needs.
Use the 'Edit' option to tailor colors, fonts, sizes, line height, and other theme settings.
To apply your theme to other courses, click the 'Add to saved' button and assign it a recognizable name.
Beyond these user-facing improvements, we've implemented a host of technical enhancements behind the scenes: optimized settings and code for improved performance on heavily loaded sites and refactoring to enable a range of exciting new features.
Stay tuned for more updates and fun functionalities coming soon to Edtch!
