On 11 November 2020, we have released a new version of the eTask topics format for Moodle 3.7-3.10. The documentation site was built to help you with everyday work while using this plugin. If you want to know what's new, check the links below.


Thanks to this plugin, we create a positive educational experience. Therefore, from time to time we prepare questionnaires to improve the eTask topics format and understand how users (both teachers and students) use it. Please check this page regularly if you are interested in participating.

  • There are currently no questionnaires available.

Thanks to

We are using JetBrains to develop this plugin.

    @Jai it is no issue of this plugin, maybe your Moodle instance is configured incorrectly (something is not working). Which version of Moodle are you using, is it production or testing site? Let me know and I will check if everything is ok on the eTask side.

    Grading table for individual student is not showing in student's account in standard Moodle app, its showing if login through browser. Should I need to change any setting to enable it in Moodle app.

    Hello Martin! I was unable to use the etask format you could help me. After defining the course format for etask I cannot edit the course. What do I do? Do you have a step by step to help me?

    Dear Edward, required version seems to be correct. Please, go to Site administration -> Server -> Environment: you can see here Moodle version and Build [e.g. 3.9.1+ (Build: 20200814)]. Send me this version and build number via a private message here on Moodle. Many thanks, Martin
