Course Life Cycle (moodle-tool_lifecycle)

Build Status codecov

This plugin provides a modular framework, similar to a workflow engine, which allows the to execute recurring tasks within moodle associated with courses. Possible use cases are (not limited to): - Deleting courses at end of life (including asking teachers for permission). - Doing a rollover at the end of a semester. - Automatically setting an end date for courses.

To be adaptable to the needs of different institutions the plugin provides two subplugin types:

Trigger: These subplugins control the conditions a course have to meet so that a specific process is started for it.

Step: These subplugins represent atomic, reusable tasks that should be executed for a specific course.

Requirements that are specific to your institution can be added through additional subplugins. For more information please have a look at the wiki. It provides instructions for administrators as well as for developers to implement own requirements into subplugins.
