I don't understand this point, could you clarify what you mean: "parental access not supported in require_login() and other parts" --Dan Poltawski 15:48, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Why limit enrolment plugins to only assign at course level?

This is the big question I have with this proposal. I think we should allow enrolment plugins to assign roles at any context. This will then allow for external systems to help save time in more scenarios. Two examples I am making up:

  • All geography teachers having rights to manage the geography category,
  • All students of class 11C & 11B being given moderator rights for a forum

If the teacher can then assign these roles by choosing the global groups rather than individually selecting the students this will be a great advantage, save time etc. Limiting the enrolment plugins to only deal with courses limits a lot of future scenarios where having this facility at any context would be advantageous. --Dan Poltawski 16:09, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
