I have a client who needs an activity that simply requires a file submission before the next topic is released.
The activity itself doesn't get graded, and it's entirely up to the user to be honest about submitting the correct kind of file - it *might* be audited.
The assignment activity is overkill, since it requires a manual intervention step by the teacher. I tried setting the "Restrict Access" setting on the next activity to require a 0% grade but it doesn't work like that
Can anyone think of a way to do this, or know of a plugin? I might have to make one.
In the assignment it is possible to set activity completion such that in order for the activity to be marked complete, and therefore release the next item, the student has to submit something (it doesn't have to be graded) Would assignment therefore work for this? How does this require manual intervention by the teacher, other than setting it up initially?
really? I fiddled about for a while trying to use assignment to release-on-upload, but couldn't figure out how to set it up that way. Using assignment would be fine. Perhaps it's that the client is using an older version (2.4) - maybe good case to get them to upgrade if it's a feature of a newer version.
Great stuff, missed the meaning of that item in the settings. Thanks Mary!
