Is anyone aware of a way to attach a certificate to an RSS session that won’t allow for online enrollment?
We use the SMS code functions for all of our RSS’s and we want our learners to have the option to view/download a certificate, but once we add the certificate object, the button appears that allows for learner to register/enroll for that activity online. Unfortunately, since we don’t have any required objects attached to our RSS’s (as that would negate the whole idea of our learners being able to text-in in the first place) once someone clicks on that button, they’ll receive credit even if the activity hasn’t occurred yet.
We don’t want to make any required objects for our RSS’s because again, we don’t want our learners who are texting in to have to go back online to do something in order to receive their credit. We also don’t want to use the attendance function because the code itself is the learner’s proof of attendance, and we would creating an abundance of work on the part of our coordinators to check off individual names since we can have over 100 different sessions occurring in a single week.
Unlike a course, you can’t password protect an RSS, or even open enrollment on a specific date, which at the very least would keep people from getting credit before the activity even occurs. And also since we don’t have any required objects, using the “Access Date” function on an object won’t help since just by clicking the button they’ll get credit.
Any thoughts on how to allow for certificates for RSS that we don’t want to allow online access to?
