    Thanks Mikhail for sharing another plugin with the Moodle community. I was able to successfully test the provided functionality. While reviewing the code, I noticed couple of areas and little issues that should be considered for fixing and further improvements. Please see your issues tracker for details. I am happy to approve this plugin now, welcome to the Plugins directory!

    By the way, I was testing the plugin with Moodle 3.0. I believe you can add it as a supported Moodle version.

    Hi, Any Plans to upgrade the plugin for v3.x?

    hi, in 3.0 the aspect ratio of the profile picture is changed. So picture is being distorted.

    When I add a Custom user profile field in moodle with a text box, and add the short name in the teaching team "Custom profile field 1, 2 or 3" the information in the text box doesn't show in teaching team block. If I add a drop down menu it does show up. Any ideas why the block isn't picking up the information from the text box in the user profile?

    I have the same doubt as the colleague above (Sarah Vaughn).

    In addition, at the time of selecting the teacher appear all students enrolled in the course as well. Instead of appearing only the teachers.

    Hi, when adding teachers all of those with role 'student' are appearing in the list. this makes it very difficult to find the teaching staff. Is there a way to limit the search in the drop down to just teacher roles?
