Activities: Subcourse

Maintained by Picture of David MudrákDavid Mudrák
Subcourse behaves as a graded activity. The grade for each student is automatically fetched from a final grade in another course. This allows course designers to organize the learning content into separate units.

Subcourse 3.0

Release notes

  • The module now observes "user graded" and "role assigned" events and fetches grades instantly on them (no need to rely on pressing the "Fetch now" button or the cron task running). Credit goes to Vadim Dvorovenko for implementing this.
  • Added Behat tests.
  • Fixed missing name of the "addinstance" capability.
  • Requires Moodle 2.8.
  • Changed versioning scheme of the plugin. The "master" branch now contains the most recent stable code.
Moodle 2.8
