This thought may be the need for a web page (e.g. portal.php) that utilizes other modules versus a new module...but I'm putting the thought out there and seeing if people have done something similar.
I want a "Student Portal" independant of any given course. It would be global to the site. Such a Student Portal would have information like:
- Student information when logged in as yourself (e.g. http://moodle.org/user/view.php?id=7061&course=5)
- My Courses
- Progress" through those courses
- Course Completed
- Certifications (pdf) available for printing
- Links to other resources like "Webmail" etc.
Again, something that is independant of a given course and has a global feel. Granted we can edit <moodle_dir>/index.php and <moodle_dir>/admin/index.php to change what user's first see, but I'm trying to have an area on EACH page where access "ALL" information about themselves.
This stemmed from conversations on certifications: (http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=2678)
