Hide courses v3.6.0
This admin tool allows managers to set all courses in a category (including subcategories) to either hidden from, or visible to, students. The intended use case is installations where all categories are already hidden by default and course visibility is the prime method for restricting access. At Lafayette, we combine this with overrides to
moodle/course:viewhiddencourses at the category level to restict access by teachers to old courses.
- Moodle 3.6 (build 2018112800.00 or later)
Copy the hidecourses folder into your /admin/tool directory and visit your Admin Notification page to complete the installation.
The tool adds two links to the category navigation block, "Hide all courses" and "Show all courses." Each will take the user to a page describing what will happen and requesting confirmation. On confirmation, Moodle will create an "adhoc task" to change all the settings in the background. This requires the cron be enabled. Each setting change will be logged in the standard Moodle log store.
If you're using Boost or a similar theme, you may need to access /course/index.php directly, navigate to the desired category, then click the edit cog at top right to reach the links.
The tool has no options but does require, as mentioned above, that cron be running.
