Notes

More features

The Notes feature is a way to attach information about a user by another user. For example, a teacher might attach a note to a specific student about the hobbies and interests that seems to engage that student.

Users must have the permissions to View notes and Manage notes in order to use this feature in any context. Thus students might be allowed to view or even manage notes within a course.

Accessing Notes

Users must have the permissions to View notes and Manage notes in order to use this feature in any context. Thus students can be allowed to view or even manage notes within a course.

The Notes page may be accessed via the Navigation block via Site pages > Notes, and/or Courses > Course Name > Participants > Moodle User > Notes - depending on your access rights and the context at which the Notes has been set. Teachers cannot by default access the Notes page via Site pages>Notes.

Administrators and managers can access Site notes via Navigation>My profile>Notes, but will see nothing unless they are enrolled in courses, in which case they will see the links to courses allowing them to go there and add Site notes.
