Assign mentors easily using the Mentors-Mentees block #MoodlePlugins

December 1st, 2015

Mentor-Mentees block is a new plugin in the moodle plugins database which allows you to assign mentors to students in a user friendly manner.

The process of assigning mentors to the mentees is a very user friendly process. Moreover, By using this block, parents, tutors, or other “helpers” are able to track the progress of particular students across multiple course including feedback, grades and submission etc.

This block also allows admin (or designated user) to create automated notifications that are sent to teachers, mentors or students based on preselected criteria (example: notification is emailed to mentor and student if student has not logged in for 7 days). Notifications can be sent by email of text message (to cell phone).

Mentor Mentees BlockThe plugin also comes along with a nice How to installation and usage manual which is a great resource to start using this block.

You can download the latest version of the Mentor-Mentees block from the Moodle plugins database here –

The block is available for Moodle 2.7-2.9 Moodle versions and is maintained by Fernando Oliveira

Thanks Fernando, I like the simplicity of the interface and the functionality provided by the plugin, in  my opinion, it will result in a great help to the users who are dealing with the Mentor accounts on Moodle.
