Hi Jeff, Hi Gordon,
Thanks for these valuable comments from both of you.
I have yet to play with more task chains in my courses - I also do blended stuff mostly, but I see how students expect to be led by the hand through all the tasks and activities, regardless. Programming the e-learning part of my course is becoming more and more of a priority.
One comment I'd have is that I'd wish there was an admin option for handling dates of selected quizzes , assignments etc in the Moodle core, same as I see it happen in the Edit Chains table. It really becomes a nuisance if, say, once needs to push all the very, very final due dates of the quizzes and all for the final week of classes. I need to update all such one by hand by hand. But that's a topic for different forums
