Periods Course format has been updated to a new version supporting Moodle 3.1 and Moodle 3.0. The periods course format plugin is very similar to weekly course format but you can set the duration for each section in days/weeks/months and years also.
The plugin Period course format is developed and maintained by Marina Glancy – Development Process Manager at Moodle HQ. The best aspect of this course format plugin is the capability to set the duration of each individual section.
The plugin will highlight the current topic automatically. The course settings allow automatically collapse or hide past or future periods. For the past periods it is possible to hide them from course view page but have each individual module still accessible through reports and/or gradebook. Also it is possible to hide past periods only if all activities in them are completed and show otherwise.
You can download the Period course format from the Moodle plugins database through this link – https://moodle.org/plugins/format_periods. The plugin is compatible with Moodle 2.8 onwards.
