Moodle Student's tracker block

This plugin adds a new block type for Moodle. Its aim is to give the teachers and staff a simple tool to view how many students didn't visit a course for a long time and so, try to reduce student's leaving.



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)

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.
