- Let all the students on the module (340) have access to core presentations and documents, but restrict public access because of the nature of some of the material contained and the wishes of some of the contributors.
- Allow the students to work collaboratively on presentations and documents which will then be available to all the other students on the course, but not be publicly available.
I've been critical of the UoL implementation of Plone in the past, and I stand by that as the original UoL platform was pretty bad. But the Plone team both here at UoL and in the wider development community have done a good job with Plone, and for this particular project where we need such fine granularity of access control, Plone is looking like a winner. Good job Nick!
Phew, glad that's sorted. All we have to do now is build it :-)
And the next trick is to resist the constant pressure/temptation to use the Web 2.0 tools as a push medium...
