Subcourse module

From MoodleDocs

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 taken from a final grade in another course. Combined with metacourses, this allows course designers to organize courses into separate units.

The module was created and is currently maintained by David Mudrak.


The module uses PHP exceptions - PHP5 is needed. Use this module at production servers on your own risk - it has not been tested very much yet. On the other hand - you are warmly welcome to install, test and report any problems.
