Not sure if this has been discussed, I didn't find anything -
-the possibility of setting up email notifications from the gradebook - to instructor, to student, to administrator, or perhaps even for k-12 to a parent's email (would need a be added into user's profile) -
when total grade drops below X% , send email notification to ...(checkboxes) - tied in with roles: student can set up for self, teacher can override student, etc...
when grade of an individual assignment/score drops below x%, send email notification
or a link to login reports - when user has not logged in for x many days, send notification, when user has not viewed resource y: send notification, etc.
I recall seeing in a conference presentation some data about retention/drop-out rates being lowered by having more notification automation capability for users.
Any interest or plans?
to do this you need to change the code a little bit
Can you elaborate on the code change you made? I am trying to find a way of having my Moodle site notify Supervisors when they have an employee who needs to renew their TSA training. Right now, we are having to perform this manually, but with over 2,300 employees, it's a bit daunting.
