Activities: Subcourse

mod_subcourse
Maintained by Picture of David Mudrák David Mudrák
The module provides very simple yet useful functionality. When added into a course, it behaves as a graded activity. The grade for each student is took from a final grade in another course. This allows course designers to organize the learning content into separate units.

Subcourse is an activity module that represents the final grade obtained in another course. This allows to create "meta-gradebook" in one course, where all final grades from other courses are aggregated.

Grades are fetched automatically or can be fetched manually any time.

The grade type and other grade item settings are copied from the original grade total item and can not be changed.

Subcourse can be automatically marked as a completed when the referenced course is completed.

    @Ricardo, any help with testing the plugin in Moodle 3.2 and reporting results will be appreciated. I am going to check all my plugins compatibility asap, but there are others' plugins that need my attention too.

    @Richard, no. The module is designed to fetch the other course's final grade only.

    A new version v4.0.1 released for Moodle 3.1 and 3.2. The only change from v4.0.0 is in the syntax of Behat tests so both versions should work well for recent Moodle versions.

    Please, tell me how to go to subcourse by one click on the link (without additional, in the screenshot №3)? Thanks

    See the checkbox "Redirect to the referenced course" and its associated help text. Hope it helps.

    Hi, I reported earlier about a bug that was related to this plugin but I just discovered I was wrong and the problem is elsewhere. I'm sorry and hope I didn't trouble you. Best regards, Rui

    Hi everybody!
    I really love this plugin and would like to see it working inside the moodle mobile app! Is there a chance to see this functionality in the short future?
    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Thanks Stefan. Please open a new ticket for the feature request in the plugin's bug tracker at github where we can discuss details of it. I will be wondering what particular feature will be useful to add (just jumping to the subcourse?) as most of this plugin's functionality is server-side.

    Hello,

    We just installed this on our dev site to see if this could help with grouping grades for a few subcourses into one main course. I can see that according to the summary on this page that the grades are fetched automatically or manually" but I can't find the way to make it automatic? I must be missing something very simple. Where's this setting hiding? Am I just being impatient and need to wait a bit?

    Cheers.
    Rob

    Sorry if the description was not clear and confused you. There is no setting for it. Every time a user is graded in a subcourse, their final grade is updated. Additionally, if you have a cron enabled (which may or may not be the case at your DEV site), there is a task (running hourly by default) to synchronize the grades.

    It would be good to add the possibility of exporting also the assessment for the element of the course

    Thanks. Can you elaborate what exactly you mean by that?

    Hi, We noticed that current is misspelled in "Your currrent grade is... (there are 3 r's). Is this corrected in an updated version, or can you let me know where we can go to correct it in the plugin? Thanks.

    Wow - that typo has been there since 2013 and no one noticed! (or they did but did not bother to report back to me, shame on them! wink) Thanks Brandon, I'm going to fix that asap. Meanwhile, you should be able to fix it for your own site either by language pack customization feature, or by editing the file mod/subcourse/lang/en/subcourse.php

    The misspelled word "currrent" fixed in the version 5.0.1. Thanks again.
