Greetings Moodlers ....been out of the moodle.org zone for a while but am back with a vengence...er...passion!
Just starting to dabble in roles, so appreciate your patience.
We are a post secondary training institution but are helping out the local middle school (kids age 12-14ish) by allowing them access to one of our courses. We have "Online User" and "Message" available for students to access on their My Moodle page. We decided to create a MS Student Role. Our objective is to "Not Allow" MS Student to edit the blocks on their "My Moodle" page but allow all other students, teachers, course creators....basically everyone else. So I did a little homework on moodle.org and thought we had all our ducks in a row but we had numerous challenges, did more research, recreated the roles adjusted some settings in the Admin>Appearance>course mgrs so the new role would show up, experimented with duplicating the student role vs creating a new role based on Legacy-student but each had its own challenges.
So I would like advice on what steps I should take in creating the role identical to the student role but without permission to edit blocks on "My moodle" and also make sure the role shows up in the course.
Thank you Thank you in advance!
