Template creator

  • The role of Template creator may be used to allow editing teachers to save Feedback templates as "public" for use in other courses throughout the Moodle site.
  • When saving Feedback questions, an administrator sees a box "Public", which, when ticked/checked, will make the template available for other users. Teachers in courses do not see this box; the instructions below explain how to enable it for them.
