Starting version 1.4 Moodle Mobile support PUSH Notifications initially only for iOs devices (iPhone, Ipad)

There are two basic pre-requisites: you must register your site and install a message plugin

Enabling PUSH Notifications in your Moodle site

Register your site

First, you must register your Moodle site. Remember that when you register a site you can choose privacy settings so your site is not visible and not listed.

Registering your Moodle site allow us to prevent any type of abuse of the public Moodle notification server (messages.moodle.net)

Download and set up the plugin

You must install the airnotifier message plugin https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=message_airnotifier

This plugin will allow your Moodle users to configure what type of PUSH notifications they want to receive (as they can do with the email, jabber, popup, etc...)

Enabling PUSH Notifications in the Mobile app

Your users should upgrade their Moodle Mobile app to the last version and also enable Notifications

Some data about your users mobile devices is stored in the Moodle database (model, platform, push token id, uuid, etc...)
