      Description

      Issue/Use case
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Some of our users use Adobe Connect rooms for assessment, and the recordings are generally only made to comply with assessment policy (i.e. oral assessment must be recorded), with no intention to ever allow students to access them. Also, assessment is often run over multiple days, so lecturers don't want recordings to be shared while the assessment is still being run.

      The activity cannot simply be hidden from the student(s), as it may be set up in group mode, with each group using their group meeting room at different times over several days, so the activity needs to remain visible.

      Feature request
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Option A: All recordings visible or hidden (simpler)

      • Have a new option in the page for setting up a Connect room/update Connect room. It could be "Hide all recordings" (unticked by default). When ticked, the recordings list would appear greyed out to those with moodle/course:viewhiddenactivities permission (or a new, equivalent permission solely for Adobe Connect recordings), and not show for those who don't have that capability set to 'allow'.
      • Implementation: There could be a simple permissions check as part of setting the value for $showrecordings (https://github.com/number33/moodle-mod_adobeconnect/blob/MOODLE_19_STABLE/view.php#L481)

      Option B: Recordings can be individually toggled (more complex, end goal)

      • Have a new option in the page for setting up a Connect room/update Connect room. It could be "Hide recordings by default" (unticked by default).
      • In addition, have the standard Moodle 'winky eye' next to each recording in the list, allowing to hide/reveal individual recordings
      • Implementation: I guess the module would need a new table to track recordings & their visibility. Then when looping through each recording to display it (https://github.com/number33/moodle-mod_adobeconnect/blob/MOODLE_19_STABLE/view.php#L505) there could be a simple permissions check so that each recording link could be displayed greyed out to those with moodle/course:viewhiddenactivities permission (or a new, equivalent permission solely for Adobe Connect recordings), and not show for those who don't have that capability set to 'allow'.
