Dash

From MoodleDocs

Overview

Dash is a block which can be added anywhere on your moodle site to display various information, e.g. the current user’s profile information or a list of users in the current course. It is built on a powerful engine which supports various data sources and templates.

Typical use cases

  • Display the participants of the current course
  • Display the current user’s profile information, with support for custom profile fields
  • List my classmates (everybody who is in the same group)
  • List all students of a teacher (all participants of all courses where the current user has a teacher role)
  • List all participants including their picture and group

Premium Addon Available

Dash Pro adds more data sources (Courses, Dashboards and Completion) and more templates (Grid, 2 Accordions, One Figure + Label, One Figure / Other Figure). Dash pro also enables you to create unlimited dashboards, which can be made available to all logged-in users, a certain cohort or even public. Dashboards are great for Landing Pages, Course overview pages, Course teasers, Trainer cockpit, Admin cockpit … and many more
