The other day I was working on a new Moodle module for a client. The module had to display the all the courses and grades for a student.
I was testing this code on my iPad, when I noticed the pull-down modal screen showing all the notifications. This got me to wondering if I could build something similar for Moodle.
If the user is on the front page of the site, they will see their progress in all the courses, along with all the grades, badges etc.
The tabs allow for more information on the pull-down screen. If for example the courses used assignments, one could add an assignment tab showing the status and any comments.
The idea was really to create a centralized location for all information a student may want to glance at. It works pretty okay, but to be fair it was never tested in a production environment, so I am sure it may need refining.
