Perfect! So it is decided automatically after the Author decided what
passage is! Thus we have to provide the Author with corresponding
tools... if we want to (in the current version).

See what? Do we or do we not provide Author with tools to set up his
passage policy?

Agreed. Hence, we are talking about future versions here? Anyway, we
have to separate, what is set by the Author and after that works
automatically for students AND what is set by the Teacher and gets
implemented either automatically, or manually. In both cases we have to
provide SETTING TOOLS, not our own policies.

It is not for us to decide what people want to learn. We provide
Those who need courses will shop for courses.
Those who want to create courses will create courses.
Those who need other UMOs will shop for these UMOs.
Those who want to create separate UMOs will create these UMOs.
The UU provides for all of them corresponding tools and the best
marketplace where all of them can meet.
Thank you :)
