Everyone can use the navigate features in Moodle.

Before I start...

Using a departmental course template makes it easier for both students and staff to navigate, since they will be familiar with the layout of the course from other courses they use.


Navigate to a course?

When you log in, your My home page homepage will appear listing all the courses you are enrolled on as a tutor, administrator or student. Hidden courses are not visible to students and will appear to staff at the bottom of the Course overview list.


Use the breadcrumb trail at the top of every page, which tells you where you are within Moodle and lets you navigate back to a parent page, such as your course homepage, or My Home pageHomepage.

  1. To return to the course homepage, click on the short course name (in the example above this is The Digital Dep CMALT 2013).
  2. The first link on the crumbtrail always takes you to your Home page (where all your courses are listed).
  3. The Navigation block (to the left or right of the main content) provides links back to My home and from here you can click a course name to access that course. Within a course, the navigation block provides a clickable list of sections within each course (see caution below for required settings for this to work).
  4. When you are logged in you will see in the top right of the screen a logout link and your name which links to your profile and some useful links to update your preferences.
