The activity Organizer allows participants to subscribe to events, which can be created easily and efficiently by teachers. There is an optional wait list for the events.
In the activity Organizer participants either upload their documents in the student folder themselves or the lecturer imports documents from the activity assignment into the folder. The lecturer can decide which documents should be visible to all participants or name individual students to release documents.
This course format allows to set duration for each section (period) in days, weeks, months or years. Each section (period) may override this duration and and the duration can be set individually.
