Users can set an option in their profile to either allow everyone to see their email address, or only other course members, or noone. I would like to implement a similar option allowing users to choose who can see their picture. The options I would like are: "Everyone can see my picture", "Only course members can see my picture", "Only teachers can see my picture".
The reason for this is that having the pictures is very important for us lecturers. It really helps our interaction with the students. However some students are reluctant to upload their pictures because they do not want everyone to see them.
The coding required to implement this will be minimal (I assume that all modules are good and only access the user pictures through print_user_picture()). I will implement the feature on our Moodle anyway. Should it go into Moodle CVS?
