@sandra this sounds really interesting, and I am keen to see where you end up. Cam Sabo, another Gibbon user who is not registered on the forum yet, shared this video with me, which might provide food for thought in terms of workflow and functionality:
Good luck, and let me know if I can help at all.
Hello jemmyn, we have discussed Bootstrap as one way to move towards responsive design, but rather than relying on a single framework, we are moving towards an inhouse solution. The first stage of this is moving the codebase towards object oriented, which is well underway in v15. Our hope is to have some responsive elements in place in v16 or v17 (see https://docs.gibbonedu.org/developers/getting-started/gibbon-road-map/ for some upcoming dates).
In terms of funds, I am currently working to try and establish a legal entity around Gibbon so that we can undertake such fund raising. For now, this is not something we could centrally coordinate, but I guess you could run a Kickstarter project to look at something like this.
Thanks for your input!
Hi icttech. Sandra is spot on here, and I would only add one thing. If you set a user's end date in advance, the system will stop showing them in most views (e.g. Attendance, Planner, Markbook) once that date is reached. Another step is to use the User Management command line tool and cron to automatically switch such students from status Full to Left. You can see instructions for doing this, and other CLI jobs in Gibbon, using the link below:
athar1, all of these are great ideas, but sadly outside of our current development capabilities. The team are tied up with improving the codebase (making such improvements easier in future versions), and so there is limited scope for such improvements just now. Down the road though, these would be excellent to add. Thanks!
Hi Cam, Ross here. I think this struck a chord with @sandra as she mentioned it to me. I think she has another plan up her sleeves (where she keeps many great ideas!), and so I think something in this regard might be in the pipeline soon. Anything you want to add her Sandra? Thanks!
