Совсем недавно увидела свет новая версия системы дистанционного образования eFront learning system 3.5.3. По моему мнению самое главное нововведение — управление группами пользователей и групповые ключи перешли в Community Edition, иным словам стали доступны абсолютно всем. Теперь можно добавить пользователя в группу и ему будут доступны все уроки и курсы назначенные этой группе.

К сожалению ложка дегтя всеже осталась. При добавлении нового пользователя в группу нужно на двух вкладках Group lessons и Group courses щелкнуть Assign selected courses to group users (Назначить выбранные курсы для пользователей группы) для проставления разрешений.

group

Если бы авторы сделали именно автоматическое назначение курсов при включении пользователя в группу, цены бы им не было.
