Hello. Currently I'm working for a school which have some server performance issues, like narrow bandwith, etc. Unfortunately, those problems cannot be solved in the short term. Meawhile we're looking for a solution to mitigate the server stress, specially during students' tests.
I wonder if there is a way to automatically restrict students access to courses like this:
A - some courses can only be accessed by students in the mornings (from 6am to noon) on weekdays
B - some courses can only be accessed by students in the afternoons (from noon to 6pm) on weekdays
C - all courses can be accessed by students from 6pm to 6am on weekdays
D - all courses can be accessed by students on weekend
I'm aware of the restrict access feature that Moodle provides for topics and activities in general and I do know how to use it, but I don't believe it is a practical solution for that specific scenario.
As I said, that could help minimize server performance issues by reducing the number of active students on courses unnecessarily, because some courses are really expected to be accessed by students only in the mornings and other courses only in the afternoons.
Any suggestions are apreciated
