Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.4. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Subcourse module.

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. Do not use this module at production servers - it has not been tested too much yet. On the other hand - you are warmly welcome to install, test and report any problems.

The source codes live in CVS contrib/plugins/mod/subcourse. To checkout the module, go to the Moodle mod/ directory and use:

cvs -z3 co -d subcourse contrib/plugins/mod/subcourse
