General plugins (Local): Resource notification
This Moodle plugin allows a teacher to notify course students by messaging
when a new resource/activity is created or modified into a course.
The notification is activated by an action performed by the teacher.
This new action is shown in a new entry at the end of the Edit dropdown menu,
available for each resource or activity, on a course page.
The notification message contains two links by default, one to the resource, and the other to the course.
The Moodle admin can modify this default setting.
The teacher can change the text to send.
The teacher can control who the message is sent to, by default all the users enrolled
into the course and allowed to view the resource.
The notification conforms to resource access restrictions such as course groups.
Moodle 3.0 is required.
Moodle has changed the way it loads plugins with its 3.1 version. The new API was introduced in Moodle 3.0, hence the requirements.
- Unpack or `git clone` under `local/`.
- Install the plugin into Moodle with either by typing `php admin/cli/upgrade.php` (CLI) or by visiting '/admin/index.php' (web).
This plugin was developped by Silecs and initially sponsored by Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France in 2013.
Additional enhancements and migration to Moodle 3.x were sponsored by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), China in 2016.
