Moodle Teacher Guide: Understanding Moodle Menus

This guide offers information, advice and resources on how to create an effective online course.

Moodle Menus

Moodle menu blocks can be changed, moved, deleted, and created. When a course is first set up, the menu blocks look like this:


Turn editing on

When you turn the editing on (upper right hand corner of Course page), the MOVE icon appears, allowing you to place your cursor on the icon and move the block.

Also, with the editing on, a new block appears - Add a block, giving lots of options for placing other blocks on the Moodle course page.

This is the list of blocks available to add:

One particularly useful block is the Activities block. The Activities block allows students to see all the activities in the course at one glance.

Moodle blocks can be confusing when it comes to editing the course, assignments, or grade book. The key is to remember that whatever module you are in creates an editing block to the left of your screen and minimizes the EDIT COURSE ADMINISTRATION block.
