About the Reengagement activity
The Reengagement activity is developed by the Moodle Partner Catalyst IT and provides a way for you to remind students to return to the course and complete activities. You can also use this plugin to selectively release timed content in a course.
Adding a Reengagement activity
A Reengagement activity can be added to a course in the same way as any other activity:
- Turn editing on
- Click 'Add an activity or resource'
- Select Re-engagement
Set Reengagement details
The Email delay can be based on the user enrolment date or a previous activity completion. If you want to use the enrolment date then don't set up any access restrictions on this Re-engagement; each user's timer will start after they enrol in the course. If you want the delay to be based on a previous activity completion you should set that activity as an access restriction to this Reengagment activity; each user's timer will start after they complete the dependencies.
Email User setting
Set "Email User" to "After Delay" and set the "Email delay" period. The e-mail delay is the when the e-mail reminder will be sent based on the previous event (enrolment or activity completion)
Set "Target Activity" - this is the activity that you want to remind the user they must complete - if this activity is flagged as complete within the course then no e-mail reminder will be sent.
If you want to release content within your course to individual users after a set period (eg 1 week after previous activity completion or 1 week after their enrolment) you use the "Activity completion" settings within the course - set the Reengagement duration to the time period you want. If you want the time period to be based on user enrolment leave the access restrictions on the activity empty, but if you want to base it on a previous activity completion set this within the restrict access configuration for the activity.
Email place holders
When configuring the e-mails sent from the plugin there are limited place holders you can use. If need to use them properly wrap them with "percentage" (%) symbols. Available substitutions are given below
