Maintained by Picture of Learning Works Learning Works, Picture of Aaron Leggett Aaron Leggett, Jeremy self portrait Jeremy FitzPatrick
Block to show the user their remaining time enrolled in a course with live countdown and lots of settings to customise the display of this timer.

A block to show students the time remaining in their enrolment period including a live JavaScript countdown. Many settings have been included to customise the way the counter is displayed; in text, with numbers, customisable units and so on. This block was also developed as a base so it is easy to incorporate your theme overrides.

Emailing functionality is also included, You can enable students be notified by email that their enrolment is expiring in a set amount of days (Default 10). Email notifications can also be enabled to congratulate a student on passing the course. This email is sent after the student receives a required grade in the course_total grade.

    Andrew, have you tried a personal message? Surprisingly, some coders just ignore messages from this forum. You also could post in the plugins forum on Also surprisingly, some people fix plugins for their own use and never think to tell anyone until we ask.
    Good luyck.

    Hi, I'm currently running a Moodle 2.9.3+ site and planning to update it to Moodle 3 or 3.1 (sometime in the future), and i would love to have your plugin installed. I do, however, have a question: have you tested in a Moodle 3+ environment? When would you have it certified?

    I have tried both developers and leaving a message at the site - no response over the last couple of months. What a shame. Perhaps this ought to be included in the moodle core since support seems to have evaporated.

    Hi Everyone, I know you all love this plug and would like it upgraded for the latest Moodle. This plugin was created and supported by LearningWorks Ltd in New Zealand. To get in contact with them you can email and request the plugin be updated.

    We are currently updating the Enrolment Timer for Moodle 3.0. This should be available before the end of the month.

    Thanks Guys for update, it did manage to get rid of the error message, but still the digits aren't visible, purged caches, checked settings, changes three different themes, and finally removed plug-in all together to re-install again just to see if I am doing anything wrong, and yet they remain invisible until highlighted with mouse drag.

    I fixed the bug in version 2016031700 by commenting out the two VAR_DUMP lines in the "locallib.php" file.
    That gets rid of the output at the top of the page.
    Then I edited the "style.css" file to add a background-colour to the numbers.
    I hope that helps people, until an update is released.
