Restrict access to course activities based on items in students stash collection using this plugin #Moodleplugins

Recently we have posted about the Stash block plugin for Moodle which is an awesome plugin to add gamification to your Moodle course. Now, Frédéric Massart & Adrian Greeve came up with another new Stash plugin which can be used to restrict access to course activities based on items in students stash collection.

The new Stash Availability plugin can only be used in conjunction with the Stash block plugin to allow items from the stash to determine the availability of course activities. You can download the Stash availability plugin from the Moodle plugins database here.

About Stash Block:

Students can then go and collect these items which will then appear in their stash block. The stash block is a good way to encourage more interaction with activities and is invaluable for teachers looking to gamify their course.
