Current versions available: 9

If your teachers want to restrict activities / resources / sections in their course to a subset of the course participants and these course participants share a common cohort, this plugin is for you.

Have a look at an example:

  • The Moodle instance provides cohorts for each study subject and groups all students with the same subject in the corresponding cohort.
  • Tim Teacher is an editing teacher in course A.
  • If Tim wants to provide activities / resources / sections only for the students of a specific study subject, for example informatics, there is no possibility to achieve this with Moodle core functionality.

With availability_cohort, Tim can do this easily. He is just able to restrict his activities / resources / sections to a certain cohort and only the members of this cohort get access to the activities / resources / sections.

Please see README file for details about the usage and features of this plugin.

    Hi, is this set to only show 25 cohorts? When installed it seems to show 25 then not scroll further so you cannot select further cohorts. Am I missing something?

    Hello Contributors, I am working with v 3.1 and am not technologically able to upgrade to 3.7. Is there an archive of past versions available for me to install? I am afraid to upgrade and break my site.

    Hi! I love this plugin, we use it on our site so much. And now we found out, that there is no version for the Moodle 4.x? Is it possible there will be a new version in the not so distant future?

    When I use the cohort restriction in a forum, notifications are sent to all students and not only to those in the cohort, what could it be?
