Hi, is this page aimed at teachers, administrators (developers) or both?

We would like to direct tutors to Moodle Docs as a user guide, and the installation details are likely to cause confusion. Should there be two pages, or would it just be easier to have something along the lines of "This is a non-standard block and which can be installed by an administrator as below" before the "technical" aspects of it. Standard block pages seemed to be split into different pages for different users (teacher/admin).

Any thoughts or is it just me ?? James Ballard 21:28, 24 April 2006 (WST)

Most of the non-standard blocks are not categorised as either teacher or admin so it will be interesting to see what others think. As for not confusing teachers then perhaps a page for installing non-standard blocks and then the instructions don't need to be repeated for every block anyway? As for a user guide. Hmmmm. I think there is a fine line between explaining what something does (documentation) and showing how to use it. These pages should, IMHO, explain how what something does but I can see there would be overlap. --Darren Smith 22:55, 24 April 2006 (WST)
By User Guide, I was thinking in terms of the normal Manual that would come with any software, which is how I interpreted Moodle Docs, rather than a full how to tutorial. This has worked well on all the standard blocks and I wondered if non-standard blocks should follow a similar idea, as in general only administrators are distinguishing between the two. Once we decide to install a non-standard block, it becomes standard as far as our tutors and Moodle users are concerned, if that makes sense. James Ballard 15:47, 25 April 2006 (WST)
