How to Print Completion Certificates in Articulate Storyline -Single Step Solution


Printing completion certificates for eLearning courses often involves tedious manual processes or complicated software. However, I’ve developed a simple yet effective solution using custom JavaScript within Articulate Storyline. In this blog post, I’ll guide you through the process of implementing this solution, making the task of printing certificates a breeze for eLearning developers and instructional designers.


1. Simplifying the Process

Traditionally, creating completion certificates involved multiple steps, including gathering learner information, formatting the certificate, and finally printing it. With my custom JavaScript solution, this process is streamlined into a single step.

2. Implementation Steps:

To implement this solution in your Articulate Storyline course, follow these steps:

I. Create a JavaScript Trigger:

First, create a JavaScript trigger on your “Print” button. This trigger will execute the custom JavaScript code responsible for generating the certificate.

II. Paste the JavaScript Code:

Paste the provided JavaScript code into the trigger you created. This code is designed to automatically retrieve the learner’s name, course title, and completion date, and then generate a PDF certificate with a predefined background image.
