The idea behind course -> activity type -> activity (current one) is still a nice idea: if you are in a forum it makes sense to say to the student: hello, there are more forums for you.
In most of the other cases ( resources) it fails: it is to global, even in a course.
Is it not possible for a teacher - as a choice - to "overrule" this automatism and replace it with a "topic-related" cue:
On the setting page of a resource or an activity it is possible to fill/chosse a topic-tag-field.
Can we use the tagging mechanism for this?
(extra: and the user can choose/add a topic-specific-icon for that topic.)
When you switch the "show-topic-related" option on you will see:
1. the topic-related icon in the page-view of a course instead of - or in front of - the activity/resource-type
2. in the navigation bar I open a resource and get:
if I click on topic-related, I get a list of all the resources and activities with the same tag..?
