After installing block_course_overview_campus with its default settings and adding it to your frontpage, it behaves like block_course_overview from moodle core. Additionally, news from your courses can be folded and unfolded and courses can be hidden from the course list.

To make use of the advanced features of the block, please visit Plugins -> Blocks -> Course overview on campus. There, you are able to activate filters for course category, course term and course teachers and can configure in detail the way courses and courses' metadata are displayed in the course list.

See README file for details

    Mukarram,
    the 2.6 version also works in 2.7.
    But there is a 2.7 version coming out within the next days with some improvements.

    Hi Alexander,
    After installing block_course_overview_Campus and updating of moodle to the Version 2.7, i have the following issue:
    Despite the opposition of 'Acadmic year (calendar year is not divided), the academic year is divided again.
    What can be the cause?
    Regards
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    what do you mean exactly with "the academic year is divided again"? Did you set the "block_course_overview_campus | term1startday" setting to 1st january? Otherwise, you will get academic years which span 1 year but are not equal to calendar years.

    Hi Alex,
    The setting 'Term 1 start day' is '1. September'. The start of the school year.
    I used your plugin since the version 2.4 and it worked perfectly. But since a short time I have dual display in the term filter:
    2014/15
    2014/15
    ...
    I also use the teacher filter and category filter.
    If the beginning of the course until January or later, then another at the same time filter is applied.
    In the hope that you can help me.
    Regards
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    I was able to reproduce the bug now and removed it. The fixed version is already in Github (https://github.com/moodleuulm/moodle-block_course_overview_campus) and will be available here in the Plugin repo soon.

    However, as we only are able to support the latest Moodle version and you seem to be still on Moodle 2.7, please download the plugin version for 2.8 and remove the line starting with "$plugin->requires..." from version.php. It should work for 2.7, too, as there haven't been 2.8-specific changes yet.

    Thanks for reporting,
    Alex

    Please disregard previous message. I believe it is another plugin causing this.

    Mahek,

    course overview on campus is a block which can be placed by users onto their MyMoodle page manually.

    If you want it to appear on all user's MyMoodle pages automatically, I propose to place it as a sticky block (see https://docs.moodle.org/29/en/Block_settings#Making_a_block_sticky_throughout_the_whole_site for details).

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hi Alexander,

    when will the block "course overview on camus" appear for moodle 2.9 or does the current version also work on Moodle 2.9?

    Kind regards
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    there will be a 2.9 version within the 1-2 months, but we didn't start working on it due to our internal release cycle.

    I didn't receive any problem reports about running the 2.8 version on 2.9 up to now, so please give it a try and let me know if you encounter problems.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Thanks for the positive feedback, Michael.

    I have released a 2.9 version in the meantime (which does not contain any new functionality at the moment).
