This is an activity module for tracking time spent by Students (or other  users) in a Course or in a related group of Courses.

Online activity is automatically tracked.
Users may also (optionally) record "offline" sessions of work.

The module will show aggregate report by user, or detailed report at user's session level.
Printable versions of all reports are available.

It also supports activity completion rules by minimum time in the Course.

By defaults, it tracks only activity in the Course the instance is in.
You may change this behaviour by module instance configuration. You may track all Courses in the same Category or Courses "meta-linked" to this Course.

By default, it tracks only Student's activity.
You may choose whose activity will be tracked by modifying Role Capabilities.

By default, only Teachers, Managers and Administrator may see other report of other user's activities.
You may change this behaviory by modifying Role Capabilities.

The Module is currently translated in English and Italian.

Documentation and an FAQ (small - work in progress) are available in English only.

this module is based on the idea of the old Register module for Moode 1.x, but it is not an update of this module.
You cannot upgrade or restore Register data from Moodle 1.9 using this Attendance Register module.

Please note that this module is not related to Attendance module
Attendance Register (this module) automatically calculates time spent online in Moodle's courses, while Attendance module allow teacher to explicitly certify attendance to a specific "offline" session.

Important note about Moodle >2.7  compatibility

The newest version of this plugin supports the new logging system introduced by Moodle 2.7

Potential privacy issues

By modifying default Roles Capabilities, you may allow some monitoring of other users activities, beyond normal Moodle's restrictions (i.e. only Teachers, Manager and Admin may see other user's reports)

    Thank you for this AMAZING plugin! A much needed tool for instructors to get a "big picture" snapshot and useful data on how much time students are spending working on their courses! This also makes student conferences much more productive when giving coaching advice to student on how they are using their time and study habits (e.g. not cramming, spacing and distributing their study and practice, etc.).

    Feature request for future updates: is there a way to add an "export" feature to CSV / Excel, and perhaps add in a "Course Average" statistic? This is a very useful feature and similar to Aday's excellent Course Dedication Block (

    Thank you to Lorenzo and the amazing CINECA team!

    Hi Lorenzo,

    is it possible, when you go to the sessions list of a specific course, to hide from the list the suspended users in the meantime?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, at this moment we are not able to provide a date for a new release due to the heavy commitment to other projects. We hope to release an updated version of the plugin within 2019

    vorrei chiedere se esiste un plugin per Moodle per Aula Virtuale far si che la mia piattaforma Moodle riesca internamente a fare lezioni in videoconferenza registrando le presenze e gli accessi dei discenti.

    Hi David,
    I handed over the maintenance of this plugin to CINECA elearning SUPPORT years ago. I've no idea whether there are any plans for upgrading it.

    Hi, we have been using this plugin on 3.5 without any problems but now need to update our site to 3.9 and are hoping we can continue use of this plugin. Will it work on 3.9 or are there plans to release a version for 3.9?

    Excellent plugin with much-needed functionality. It has helped students pace themselves on our courses as well as respond to time requirements from our authorities. Would be great to be able to upload a file as evidence for an offline session.
