      Description

      Moodle weekly view lets us write the students weekly assignments, both at and away from the computer. A nice improvement would be to print the content in a section. This way, both students and staff know that the latest master version is in Moodle, yet they can review tasks that are to be done away from the computer. I think a print icon that triggers a CSS stylesheet for printing might be easier than creating a PDF, but for the user either will do.

        Thanks for the suggestion.

        It would be good to be able to generally deal with the print media type through themes.

        Please bear in mind different paper sizes, A4, US letter, when creating the print stylesheets, as well as different browsers capabilities.

        Here is a US letter example for Internet Explorer 8 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd433064%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

        In Europe A4 is the norm, so this example needs some changes.
