Component/s: User service (Pre-K1/2.6)
Currently, a user has one ID, one email address, one name, and so on across all sites within a Sakai installation. There should be a way to set site-specific user data which will be displayed instead of the defaults in the context of a given site. In particular, course-site-specific aliases should be able to override a student's user ID.
- In a Trade Bargaining course, students are assigned country names. For the duration of the course they represent that country in all activities within the course, including voting, chatting, and discussions. In the equivalent course site, students are identified by country name aliases in all tools.
We have a Trade Bargaining course where students are assigned country names and for the duration of the course they represent that country in all activities within the course.
For the last few years they've been using an online environment to do their bargaining, voting, chatting and discussions. Having access to an online environment has become essential to the course and they won't be able to use Sakai without this feature.
The alias should be course specific.
Also the students don't choose their alias, it is assigned to them
