Description

The Organizer module allows participants to subscribe to events, which can be created easily and efficiently by teachers.

The Organizer consists of three tabs:

  • Events: provides an overview of all available and past events and allows teachers to create new events, delete and edit existing events, assess events in which people have enrolled and print all selected events.

  • Students' view: shows a simplified view of the enrolment page as seen by participants.

  • Enrolment status: provides a detailed overview of participants' enrolments. This tab allows teachers to send reminders to students who have not enrolled yet.

Teachers have access to all three tabs, whereas students can only access the second tab "students' view".

Group organizer:

If a group organizer was created, a grouping must be selected in the settings for which the organizer is to be used. As soon as one participant enrols, all other group members are enrolled as well and are notified about time and place of the event.

Note: Students can be enrolled in only one group of this grouping.

Example

Create events for group meetings for submitting a project to allow students to enrol in an event of their choice. The events should, for example, be created for the two upcoming weeks to take place from Tuesdays to Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., at 15 minutes each. Enrolments, changes and unenrolments should be possible up to two days prior to the event, or at least by a specific date. Students' attendance and grades are to be documented.

Requirements

The plugin is available for Moodle 2.5+. This version is for Moodle 3.2.

Bug Reports / Support

We try our best to deliver bug-free plugins, but we can not test the plugin for every platform, database, PHP and Moodle version. If you find any bug please report it on GitHub. Please provide a detailed bug description, including the plugin and Moodle version and, if applicable, a screenshot.

You may also file a request for enhancement on GitHub. If we consider the request generally useful and if it can be implemented with reasonable effort we might implement it in a future version.

You may also post general questions on the plugin on GitHub, but note that we do not have the resources to provide detailed support.
