Very limited budget -- $50 to $100 maximum.
We need a simple add-on activity type compatible with Moodle 2.4.3 (Build: 20130318) that marks itself complete after a certain number of days (perhaps display like a label, rather than having a 'view' page, and the label could give some idea of how long until it was complete).
Other activities connected to that acitivity would not become available until the time had run on this new activity type and it became marked 'complete'.
Please Note: We have thoroughly investigated the completion tracking and prerequisite/dependencies options in Moodle. However, Moodle does not restrict access to a higher level course based on a lower level class dependency. So in essence, in basic Moodle, students are not restricted from entering Level 3 of a course even if they haven't done Level 1 or 2. This is unacceptable to us.
We are setting up sections in a Course by topic.
We condition the release of each item in a section on the prior item so that there is a sequence they must follow.
Once all items in that Section 1 of the course have been completed, Section 2 will be released and so forth.
However, we want a waiting period between release of the sections in the course - we want to have the special activity type that stays grayed out for a number of days of our choosing (options 1 through 30) and then condition the release of the next Section on that special activity -- so in essence we are throttling down the pace of the class so that students will (in theory) spend time on each section.
We are a self-paced environment and therefore, this hands-off approach of releasing sections would be very helpful for us.
If you can help us within the budget outlined above, we would be pleased to hear from you and address any questions you may have.
