THIS IS AN MUA PROJECT PROPOSAL THAT WILL BE OR HAS BEEN SUBMITTED FOR POSSIBLE MUA FUNDING. ANY EXISTING TRACKER ITEMS THAT THIS MIGHT DUPLICATE SHOULD BE LINKED TO BELOW.
Currently, the Workshop activity supports groups in two ways: A teacher can assign peer reviews to be originating from outside from one's group (visible groups), or within the group that the student belongs to (separate groups). However, there has been discussion in the Moodle tracker since the year 2012 about adding support for students to work in teams. This would mean that the students could submit their work as a team and review others' work as a team.
In practical terms, this would mean that if the suggested "team mode" was enabled, a workshop submission made by a single member of a group would be visible to every other group member as well, as if they had made the submission themselves. Likewise, a review made by a member of the same group would be visible to other group members as if they had submitted the review themselves.
The advantage of this would be that the group members could work on the submissions as a team, and review other teams' work. After completing their tasks, all team members would be assigned the same grade for their work in the Workshop.
- Project size: medium

A workshop that is in Team mode, should display group names instead of student names in the Workshop UI.
A solution for workshops, where the teacher disables team mode after submissions have been made. For example, submitter is the person who last edited the submission, and assessments allocated to all team members?
