Restriction by course role
If your teachers want to restrict activities / resources / sections in their course to a subset of the course participants and these course participants share a common course role, this plugin is for you.
Have a look at an example:
- Tim Teacher is an editing teacher in course A.
- Carl Clueless and Steve Smart are Tim's student assistants.
- As Moodle admin, you have already created a custom course role called "student assistant" in your Moodle installation. Carl and Steve have this role in course A to do their work.
- If Tim wants to provide activities / resources / sections only for Carl and Steve in course A, for example a forum activity where they can discuss internal stuff, he had to do some workarounds in the past. The most popular solution was to put Carl and Steve into a group and restrict the activities / resources / sections to this group, but there were even more complicated workarounds.
With availability_role, Tim does not need any workarounds anymore. He is just able to restrict his activities / resources / sections to a certain course role and all users who have this role in the course context have access.
