Moodle Guide

The development of this guide is ongoing; we will continue adding Moodle LMS Tips, Guides, and Instructions. On the left-hand sidebar, you will find a list of Moodle LMS features or options. To learn more about that option or feature, click on the link.

Navigating Your Course

  • Students and instructors can use the left sidebar to navigate through the course. All topics, activities, and resources are clickable links. Instructors can also rearrange the order of content and activities using the left sidebar.
  • Students and instructors can collapse the left sidebar when not being used.
  • Topics are collapsible.

Both the left and right side bar are collapsible which will help reduce extraneous material when engaging in a topic or an assignment. The "turn editing on" function is no longer a button but it is a switch labeled Edit Mode. The course menu is directly below the title. Here you will find the settings for your course, a listing of participants. Under the heading More, you will find the Course Reuse option.

Course Quick Navigation

The Course Quick Navigation is new to Moodle 4.1 and it can be useful to quickly navigate to any element within a course. The course content will be broken down into an outline format, and students will be able to quickly click to links to each content element. The Course Quick Navigation will build links for topics, labels, activities, and resources.
