The user-to-user messaging system

  • Popups everywhere

Wizards

Processes in Moodle that resemble wizards should either be redesigned to be less sequential, or have all the elements that help users navigate, of wizards.

  • Installation
  • Backup
  • Without any proper navigation between the two steps/modes:
    • Two-step roles UIs (assign roles in course)
    • Two-step groups UIs (add users to groups in course: select group -> add users to group)
      • Lack of any visual hierarchy or distiction between navigation and commands, it is not communicated that some of the commands work on the selected item in the list.
