    Description

      Let's make some improvements to the Starter site admin preset based on community feedback in the discussion Site admin presets in Moodle 4.0.

      We also need to consider new features and improvements in 4.0, such as the BigBlueButton activity, and decide on appropriate settings for them in the Starter preset.

       


      This is the list of settings/plugins to be changed (after discussing and agreeing on them):

      BLOCKS
      The following blocks will be disabled by default in the Starter preset:

      • Online users (block_online_users). In Moodle 4.0 it has been removed from the Dashboard.
      • Recently accessed courses (block_recentlyaccessedcourses) and Starred courses (block_starredcourses). The My Courses page lists recently accessed courses, so there is no point in adding the block to the Dashboard. There is also no point in adding the Starred courses block to the Dashboard because you can only star courses on the My courses page.

      QUESTION TYPES

      • Essay and Description question types will be re-enabled in the Starter preset (as suggested by timhunt in an issue).

      GUEST ACCESS

      As recommended by thornedu in the forum, the following settings related to Guest access will be disabled for the Starter preset:

      • Plugins / Enrolments / Manage enrol plugins > "Disable Guest access"
      • Plugins / Authentication / Manage authentication > Guest login button = Hide.

      ACTIVITY CHOOSER

      To reduce the information displayed in the activity chooser:

      • Activity chooser tabs (activitychoosertabmode) will be set to "Starred, All, Recommended" (no Activities or Resources tabs).
