actually there is no way in Moodle to let a student know how estimated working time he has to spent working on each activity/ressource/course AND to report/summarize those informations for all subscribed courses.
The only actual way is to add this data to course/activity/ressource(/section ?) description. But we can't query and report by this way.
It would be great to have :
- an optionnal field in course parameters (data in hours : data type float, eg. 1.5 hour ; data in minutes : data type integer, eg 210 mn) AND/OR
- an optionnal field in activity/ressource(/section ?) parameters (data in hours : data type float, eg. 1.5 hour ; data in minutes : data type integer, eg 210 mn)
- a block who displays the total time of activities/ressources, optionnaly : total time and title + time of each activy/ressource)
- a method to report/export sum of activities/ressources and/or courses estimated working time by student with details
Or we could have a more generic solution if we could add some custom optional fields for courses (cf
MDL-18319) and activities/ressources.
