Advanced Configuration

The ability to enable/disable URKUND within a Moodle module such as an assignment is managed using a capability that is by default given to all managers and editing teachers on the site. If you want to force all assignments on your site to use URKUND and prevent your teachers from changing these settings you can set the defaults above and then remove the capability “moodle/plagiarism_urkund:enable” from your teacher roles.

You can also use this capability to selectively allow certain teachers to use URKUND by setting the default above “Enable URKUND” to “No” - and giving the capabiltiy “moodle/plagiarism_urkund:enable” only to the teachers you want to be able to use URKUND
