Hidden deadline

Hidden deadline
 

If I use on the settings page of an activity the restrict access, I can add dates with from and until settings.
As teacher I see these dates in the settings overview.
As student I only see the from setting, not the until..

Why is this and how to change that, because it is very confusing: students think now that the from is the until deadline.

Hello Ger. I think this might be related to the this tracker issue MDL-62379, which has an explanation from Sam Marshall, restrict access developer.

Yes, that is exactly the problem..

MDL-62379 writes: "In general, for students, we never show conditions if you can access the activity."

Well.. this explanation is not covering the situation: 


  • When the activity is not open yet, students sees the "from" condition: according the explanation both conditions should be visible
  • Both (and other) conditions disappear as soon as the activity is open?
  • Why not show the conditions all the time: why should student not wish to keep the conditions seeing? (Student more in control of his/her own learning...)

and...

  • The wish to keep showing the deadline when the activity is open is another good wish in MDL-62379
