SmarterU enables you to customize various elements of your online course including the course's image that used in the course details page and various dashboards, the footer, the merge document, and completion certificate.

An online course's customization settings are located in the Customization accordion of the Course Information workscreen.

Merge Document

This is a deprecated feature. If you are currently using a merge document, it will continue to work as is, but we will not be adding or changing its functionality.  

With some custom programming you can add the ability to capture text from the learner as they progress through a course, and then merge it into a finished document with headers and other design elements. Contact support@smarteru.com if you are interested in using this functionality.

To upload a merge document: 

  1. Add or edit an online course.
  2. From the Course Information workscreen, expand the Customization accordion.
  3. Click Upload Merge Doc. If you are replacing an existing file, click Replace Merge Doc.
  4. Upload the file by doing the following:
  1. Navigate to the file's location.
  2. Select the file.
  3. Click Open.

If you have already uploaded a merge document, hover over the View Merge Document link to preview the file. 

To delete the merge document, click the X beside the View Merge Document link.

Course Completion Certificate

Select one of the following:

  • None - There is no course completion certificate.
  • Default - SmarterU's default course certificate is generated. If a certificate has been uploaded for the account, that will be the default certificate used. If no account-level certificate exists, the SmarterU default certificate will be used. 

  • Custom - You may upload a PDF that will be used to generate the course completion certificate. The PDF should be 8.5 x 11 inches and may contain text, graphics, and fields for the learner's name, course name, course provider name, and completion date. Upon completion of the course, SmarterU will merge the information into the PDF to generate a completion certificate for the learner. Refer to Creating a Custom Certificate for more information.
