I hesitated to open this discussion on usability forum. Sorry if I post in the wrong forum.
At our university, teachers have more and more difficulties to handle long tasks on "big" courses like :
- backup a course
- download all assignments at once in a zip file
- reset a course
Did you have same issues ? How did you solve theses problems ?
Last year, we atried to implement a function to differ task execution, based on comment in this issue. To sum up, when a teacher asks to download assignments zip, an adhoc task is created. Then, he is redirected to his course, and do what he have to do. After few minutes, he receives a notification when the job is done (and in this case a link to download his zip file).
Any feedbacks will be appreciate.
