"Since you've been gone" feature
 

We are looking to introduce a "Since you've been gone" feature in our Moodle instance. This feature basically ensures that if a student logs into their profile, a pop-up or a page listing all the activities or updates that happened in their courses/modules between the last time they logged out and their logging in pops up on their dashboard

I am not sure if this is possible or has been done before but we would appreciate any form of advice or direction. We are currently on Moodle 3.3.3 and use the Boost theme.

Thanks a lot for the response Ralf. Ia there a way of copying the code in the block and use it for the pop up? Can one also rename a block in moodle?
