Organizer module

The Organizer (mod/organizer) allows participants to subscribe to events, which can be created easily and efficiently by teachers.

The Organizer consists of three tabs:

  • Events: provides an overview of all available and past events and allows teachers to create new events, delete and edit existing events, assess events in which people have enrolled and print all selected events.
  • Students' view: shows a simplified view of the enrolment page as seen by participants.
  • Enrolment status: provides a detailed overview of participants' enrolments. This tab allows teachers to send reminders to students who have not enrolled yet.

Teachers have access to all three tabs, whereas students can only access the second tab "students' view".

Group organizer:

If a group organizer was created, a grouping must be selected in the settings for which the organizer is to be used. As soon as one participant enrols, all other group members are enrolled as well and are notified about time and place of the event.

Note: Students can be enrolled in only one group of this grouping.

Example

Create events for group meetings for submitting a project to allow students to enrol in an event of their choice. The events should, for example, be created for the two upcoming weeks to take place from Tuesdays to Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., at 15 minutes each. Enrolments, changes and unenrolments should be possible up to two days prior to the event, or at least by a specific date. Students' attendance and grades are to be documented.

Installation

Copy the module code directly to the "mod/organizer" directory. Open the messages page in the administration are to automatically start the installation.

Admin settings

As an administrator you can set the default values instance-wide on the settings page for administrators in the organizer module.

  • Best grade (text field)
  • E-mail notification (drop down)
  • Send a summary of events (drop down)
  • Final deadline (drop down)
  • Relative deadline (drop down)

    Hi,
    thanks for the great plugin!
    I would appreciate it if the teacher or admin could configure if the user ID should be shown. Why? The user ID is the student ID at our university, which other students are not supposed to know (and which is kept hidden throughout our installation - except for this plugin... mixed
    Thanks in advance!

    Dear Guido,

    thanks for writing here. May I ask you to specifiy in what case you don't want the students to see other students uder ID. There are tons of different settings you can set in the organizer module and it would be much easier for us to figure out what we can improve, if you give us the exact use case: all the important settings of the organizer (group or not, students visible or not, etc).
    Have you seen that you can set the visibility of slot members in the organizer settings itself? Maybe this is the setting you are looking for.
    Cheers Kasia

    Hi,
    honestly, we are trying to create our plugins as mobile friendly as possible, but it is definitely not our highest priority.
    what kind of moodle mobile support would you expect for this plugin?

    In string "eventtemplatewithoutlinks" you have Ort:
    Not english but deutch
    "Dieser Ort kommt mir bekannt vor, ich muss hier schon einmal gewesen sein."
    I think you mean "Location:"
    I'm Portuguese (PT) translator. No problem.
    THANKS
