      Description

      We've had some useability testing work done recently on OpenLearn. We received some feedback about the way that Help functions, which I'd like to share. I don't personally see this as a very big issue and so am not in a position to change the code right now, but I'm logging the issue here in case other Moodle users think it's important and maybe a core solution could be made?

      Essentially its been suggested that a link to the help index page should be made available more widely on the site - which would be a content issue and trivial to do. But then the following suggestions are that the help texts displayed should depend on the permissions of the user browsing them i.e. you should only see help pages about assigning roles or creating a quiz (for example) if you are able to do that at some point within the system. Additionally it was suggested that there should be a search facility within the help pages.

            We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
