    Description

      allows students to send Q&A forum post notifications with no editing-time delay

      new capability: 'canmailnow'

      Description:

      Currently, at the Moodle Forum, student posts will be sent after the global preset editing-time delay (30 min default) only. That cannot be changed at all. Neither by admins, managers nor by students.

      As typical for a Q&A Forum, students are required to post once before viewing other students' posts. Then students have to wait for the whole preconfigured delay time before they can see the ongoing discussion. Especially for Q&A forums this can be an annoying experience.

      Therefore, we suppose that it should be possible to enable students to decide themselves, with 'opt in' option, like teachers, to post an send notifications with no editing-time delay. This will improve students satisfaction and didactic meaning of this forums setting.

      To decide self-sufficient and e.g. to fullfill individual security needs etc., Institutions, managers or teachers should be able to activate or deactivate the "Send forum post notifications with no editing-time delay" option for students.

      In our feature request this could be done by a low-threshold solution: adjusting new users capabiltiy 'canmailnow'.

      A more convenient solution could be e.g. an activation within the course settings.

       

      Amendment for editing and deleting (own) posts by students:

      Students should be enabled  to decide by simple opt-in option to send QandA forum post notifications

      • with editing-time delay  -> editing or deleting possible until editing-time passed / other student post will be visible after editing-time passed
      • without editing-time delay  -> editing or deleting not possible anymore / other student post will be visible immediately.

       

      To avoid cheating, once the post has been sent with no editing-time delay, it should no longer be possible to edit or delete that post by students themselves.
