We never enabled the Parent Role and have always relied on password sharing for parents to get into student’s Moodle courses.
But a trend seems to be arising in our school: it seems that either students are not sharing passwords with their parents, or parents do not want to ask the students for their passwords. Either way, I am looking for a quick way to allow parents in, while not investing too much time into it. Implementing the Parent role is probably more than I can chew right now.
Does anyone know of a different approach? My thoughts are along the lines of allowing parents somehow change the password to Moodle, perhaps by adding their own email to the student profile, in a way that can be used in the forgotten password routine. The idea is to leave the school out of whatever password struggles the family may have.
Do you think that could work? Or does anyone have a different/better solution?
Thanks in advance for your time.
