Course contents block is similar to the Simple navigation block. It simply produces a list of all visible topic/week in your course. Clicking at one of these links will display that particular week or topic.
The block automatically extracts a suitable title for every week or topic from the section summary. If you start summary with a heading (H1, H2, H3, etc), it will use such heading text. If your summary starts with a bold text, it will be used as a section title. If the summary consists of several paragraphs, the first one will be used. If the summary is empty, a customizable text "Unit X" (where X is the number) is displayed. Technically spoken, the plain text content of the first non-empty HTML DOM node from the section summary is used as the summary title.
The block has been written and is currently maintained by David Mudrak
There is a public source code repository for the block at . You can either clone that repository or just download the latest package there. Follow the instructions provided by github for details but this may be what you want:
# cd /var/www/moodlesite/htdocs/blocks # git clone git://github.com/mudrd8mz/moodle-block_course_contents.git course_contents
If your Moodle dirroot is git checkout too, you may want to add the block directory into the list of ignored files:
# cd /var/www/moodlesite/htdocs # echo /blocks/course_contents/ >> .git/info/exclude
