I have used the external database plugins for enrolling and authentication. I allow both students, faculty staff and parents to log in - since we have this information in our database.
Currently, our parents are getting "guest" access to all the courses that their children are enrolled in (through the Enrolment External Database Plugin), which works to a degree, but they are then unable to monitor their children's progress.
Is there an automated way to assign parent-privileges for the parents on our site, so that they become mentors of their children? Preferably done through an automated enrolment plugin so that the information in our administration system is automatically updated on Moodle?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
