A great way to support learners in their learning experience is to send them reminders to do things that have a deadline.
- 10 days after entering the course for the first time
- 5 days after beeing enrolled but never entered the course
- 2 days prior to pre-test deadline but test not yet passed
With a new reminder tool rules can be defined under which emails or notifications can be generated for users. As this is a special feature and to be more flexible and not clutter the interface we decided against adding it to the course node configuration but to implement a dedicated tool.
The configuration is stored in the database and always works on the run structure, thus changes do not need to be published in the editor.
