Currently the event monitoring system is aimed at teachers and administrators. It would be useful if students could subscribe to receive alerts relevant to them. E.g. if they receive an individual extension for an assignment, or if their grade is revealed in the gradebook.
We have also requested events for monitoring the release of grades and feedback.

The way this seems to work currently is site admins set the event at site level, and then students (once we enable the tool/monitor:subscribe permission for them) can choose to subscribe to them for each course and activity within the course, as they choose to. It's good that the staff member doesn't need to set this up on the course yet, but I think we need a way to define whether events are intended for teachers or students. We also need to ensure that the events are relevant to the individual students.
It would be useful if you could set the roles that each event is relevant to. In that way you could filter out those that are just intended for teachers and those that are only relevant to students.
