Certification for participation is optional. Learners meeting the minimum participation specifications can apply for certification of participation in the form of a pdf letter from the OER Foundation at no cost. This is an experimental feature we are trialling with OCL4Ed 14.06.

Note that you will be required to register the following information on the course landing page before you commence activity on the course:

The participation certification is experimental and provided on an "AS-IS" and "AS-AVAILABLE" basis. Students are responsible for entering the correct information on registration. As this feature relies on 3rd party websites, we are unable to guarantee that these services will be operational for the duration of the course and we cannot guarantee that late registrations will track all your activity. Please note that the automated participation metric is final as we do not have the resources to attend to individual appeals in cases where the automated participation metrics may differ from what you believe these to be.
