      Description

      Yet again I've had to puzzle out the meaning of the pop-up Help text for Quiz 'Allow access from'. Here's a suggestion for better wording. I'm assuming this text is used in locations other than Quiz, otherwise I'd make additional changes.

      Currently:
      ------
      Allow access from

      Access from/to dates determine when students can access the activity via a link on the course page.

      The difference between access from/to dates and availability settings for the activity is that outside the set dates the latter allows students to view the activity description, whereas access from/to dates prevent access completely.
      ------

      Suggested:
      ------
      Allow access from

      Access from/to dates determine when students can access the activity via a link on the course page.

      The difference between access from/to and availability settings for the activity is that outside the set dates, access from/to prevents access completely, while availability allows the students to view the activity description.
      ------
