I was going through weekly course format and just thinking about one setting which is missing i.e "Hide upcoming weeks" drop down Yes or No
Weekly format- A line from Moodle docs "If you want all your students to work on the same materials at the same time, this would be a good format to choose".
Weekly course format also allow students to view upcoming weeks and also can access it. That can be possible in topic too if it would not restrict him to access the upcoming weeks.
So there must be a advanced setting like "Hide upcoming weeks" drop down Yes or No. on the course page if somebody choose weekly format. Which is not there right now.
We can hide upcoming weeks by various other ways such as by enabling conditional access, or hiding it manually.
