This is an activity module for tracking time spent by Students (or other users) in a Course or in a related group of Courses.
Online activity is automatically tracked.
Users may also (optionally) record "offline" sessions of work.
The module will show aggregate report by user, or detailed report at user's session level.
Printable versions of all reports are available.
It also supports activity completion rules by minimum time in the Course.
By defaults, it tracks only activity in the Course the instance is in.
You may change this behaviour by module instance configuration. You may track all Courses in the same Category or Courses "meta-linked" to this Course.
By default, it tracks only Student's activity.
You may choose whose activity will be tracked by modifying Role Capabilities.
By default, only Teachers, Managers and Administrator may see other report of other user's activities.
You may change this behaviory by modifying Role Capabilities.
The Module is currently translated in English and Italian.
this module is based on the idea of the old Register module for Moode 1.x, but it is not an update of this module.
You cannot upgrade or restore Register data from Moodle 1.9 using this Attendance Register module.
Please note that this module is not related to Attendance module.
Attendance Register (this module) automatically calculates time spent online in Moodle's courses, while Attendance module allow teacher to explicitly certify attendance to a specific "offline" session.
Important note about Moodle 2.7 and 2.8 compatibility
The current version of this module is not compatible with the new Logging model introduced by Moodle 2.7, but I've reports of working installations setting Legacy logging mode. Please see this page.
Maintenance and update
Currently, this module is not maintained. As only maintainer I cannot work on it.
I'm not able to give any forecast or schedule about updating to newer Moodle versions.
I'm not able to give any support.
If anyone is willing to update the module to support the new Logging System, please send me references to the Git commit and I'll be glad to include in the distribution.
