I have been working on adding user and group overrides to the lesson activity module. Code and screenshots are available in MDL-7315
I have re-used all the code done by Matt Petro for implementing user and group overrides in the quiz module so it works exactly the same.
Of course as lesson has a lot of settings related to user, there is a lot more lesson settings you can override.
I would enjoy getting some comments:
- is this an interesting feature
- do you see any other lesson settings you would be interested in overriding ?
I know some Moodle users would be interested in a more general approach to allow overrides for all Moodle activities
, but because of the differences between modules (and I should say difference in the code quality between modules, no offence, but some modules have very old code
) I am convinced after working on lesson that this would be a very big task. So I decided, as there were many votes to implement this in lesson to give it a try in the hope it would be useful to those users. Maybe in the future somebody else will try a more general solution ?
Note that it was in fact rather simple because I started from good code.
