The course home page is the main page of any Moodle course. It's where the topics or weeks display, and the related lists of resources and activities.
The course home page can look very different from course to course—it is up to your teacher to decide on the format and content of the page. However, certain elements will be the same for all courses.
This page describes the elements of the course home page, and their uses.
Blocks: The boxes down the left-hand side of a course home page contain information or functions specific to the particular Moodle course.
The Navigation block on the course home page is different from that on the My home page; if the course is organised in weekly-outline or topic-outline sections, these sections are listed in the Navigation block for direct access.
Breadcrumbs: These display at the top of the page, below the page banner. They show you the route you took to reach this page (e.g. My home > Courses > [course name]). Use these breadcrumbs to return to earlier pages.
Course resources and activities:
- A "resource" is any type of non-interactive digital content that your teacher has added to your Moodle course.
- An "activity" is an item of interactive content created by your teacher using one of the Moodle tools (e.g. assignment, chat session).
Resources and activities will be grouped and displayed in different ways, depending on the course.
