Description:

This block is allows administrators to streamline the course creation
process at the start of the semester by allowing educators to make
requests for courses to be created.

Once requested, the Moodle administrator is responsible for accepting or
denying requests for courses. If the administrator is not happy, a comment
feature allows a conversation to take place between them and the educator about
the pending request.

During the process of creating a course request, additional information
about the course can be collected from the educator such as course title,
course codes and semester information. This block also offers additional
customizable fields to allow the administrator to collect additional course
information.
