We've seen how to set up completion tracking in our course, and if we do this, we're able to specify the conditions that an activity has marked complete. We can also, then, specify the conditions a course is marked complete. One way we can do this is by allowing students to mark the course complete themselves, and in this video we're going to explore how to do that. First we need to ensure that completion tracking is enabled in the core settings, which we did before, by clicking edit settings and enabling it.
And when that's done, we should have a link completion tracking. Clicking this link takes us to the screen where we can set the criteria for our course to be marked as complete. And one of the simplest criteria, is to enable what we call manual self completion. If we check this box, then the student is able to mark the course complete themselves, when they feel that they're ready. So, if we check that box and then scroll down, and save the changes. The next thing that we do, is to give them a link to mark the course complete.
And this is done by adding the course completion block. So, if we scroll down with our editing turned on, to the add a block option and from the drop down, select self completion. When the page refreshes, blocks are always added by default to the bottom of the course. And so I'm going to move this towards the top, and then we're going to take a look at what our student George would see when he comes back to the Moodle course.
Notice that we have a message you are not currently being tracked by completion in this course, this is perfectly fine because we are the teacher and we don't need to have course completion, but I am now going to open a new window and we're going to take a look at the course from the point of view of our student George. And, if we scroll down, we see that we now have a self completion block, and George just need to click the link, complete course, and he would have manually decided that he has finished the course to his satisfaction.
So, in this video, we've learned how to allow students to mark their course as completed themselves. Using the manual completion setting in the completion tracking link, and by adding the self completion block. You might, however, prefer to make that decision yourself, and in the next video, we will explore teacher controlled course completion settings.
