This block aims to give teachers and staff a simple tool to view how many students didn't visit a course for a long time and doing so, tries to reduce student's dropping out.

Studentstracker block overview

The block is customizable :

  • block's title
  • choose the roles and groups you want to track
  • choose the roles able to see the block
  • set the number of days from last connection required to track users
  • set an amount of results to display (the rest can be toggled with a button)
  • change the default date format used by the block

It also includes a link to open the direct Moodle message dialog, allowing teachers and managers to contact the tracked users in very a fast and easy way.

    I have some custom roles installed and even if I set the 'track every role' to NO, these custom roles still show up as inactive students. How do I remove them from the list? The custom roles are not student roles! Also not based on the archetype STUDENT!

    Hello Richard,
    I just made a test this morning with a custom role and it worked on the latest version. Could you upgrade the plugin and give another try ?

    I am wondering is there a way to add this by default to all courses in moodle 3.3?

    Hello Christopher,
    The Moodle way seems to be by editing the config.php file at the root of the Moodle installation folder on your server. See the official doc about the method :

    Completely blown away, in a good way. Kudos, standing ovation, and nomination for best positive community outreach/help people, make the world a better place and self help team! Waking up sleep deprived and grumpy, the positive energy and straightforward message these guys delivered made me smile and made my day. For the most part, this isn't the same old stuff you've heard repeated. They've done such an amazing job on this.

    I wanted to install a plugin, but the plugin update check doesn'r let me unless I update this plugin. But the update returns this error. Moreover I am stuck at the plugin update page if I log in as admin

    exception 'zip_exception' with message 'Invalid structure of the zip package' in mdeploy.php:1422
    Stack trace:
    #0 mdeploy.php(805): worker->unzip_plugin('/home/t/theonep...', '/home/t/theonep...', '/home/t/theonep...', '/home/t/theonep...')
    #1 mdeploy.php(1535): worker->execute()
    #2 {main}

    There seem to be posted a new version, but can I see a changelog somewhere? What is altered in the new version?

    Hi Richard,

    I forgot to write the release notes. That should be a bit more clear now !
