Moodle Assignment Deadline Notification for Teachers

The "Moodle Assignment Deadline Notification" service for all Moodle courses is effective from January 2016. Students will receive a notification email message three days before the due date of a "Moodle assignment" of a Moodle course. This service is now extended to teachers. By subscribing, teachers will receive a notification email message three days before the due date of a "Moodle assignment", that is at the same time as students do.

Note:

  1. This service only applies to “Moodle assignments”, NOT “Turnitin assignments”.  There is NO deadline notification for a Turnitin Assignment.
  2. The notification email messages will be generated daily at 4:00am three days before the due date of the Moodle assignments. However, please note that the notification email messages are for reference only and there is no guarantee delivery of email, e.g. the receiver’s INBOX may have disk quota full or emails are filtered by some filtering rules set up by the receiver or the email system.
