Simple Reminder Block
Innovation Description:目的・機能の説明:

We developed the Simple Reminder block to send a reminder to students that a deadline is approaching. Moodle's calendar (Upcoming Events block) and assignment modules have a function to notify students about their submission or grading that has been done by the instructor. The instructor can also use the message feature to send a notification or send notifications to selected students from the list of students in other plugins (ex.Questionnaire plugin). In practice, however, it is necessary for the instructor to remember to select a date in advance of the deadline to manually notify the students of the upcoming deadline. It is currently difficult and time-consuming to do this. Therefore, we decided to develop the Simple Reminder block which will send a notification on a specified date and time set by the instructor for any activities they wish. In addition to the specified date and time, this block also uses the activity completion results, so only the students who have not yet completed the activity will get the reminder. For example, a notice can be sent to students who have not done one or more posts by the date and time specified in a forum but no notice is sent to students who have satisfied this requirement. A Simple Reminder block is set for only one notification, but there can be multiple blocks in one course to send other reminders.
