Where in the TOC?

Please can anyone help by suggesting where in the TOC it would make most sense to include the following items:

--Helen Foster 16:35, 1 October 2011 (WST)

Activities > (sitewide) communication tools? We do not have anything that addresses "Email" except a contributed module. We call chat and forums activities. Notes is on the communication tool template with Comments, blogs, messaging, tags and calendar. I would drop the "sitewide", maybe call it "Communications". Might add chat and forums. --chris collman 20:55, 2 October 2011 (WST)

Site default settings

I like this sub category. A few others come to mind:

  • Course defaults
  • Plugin defaults (long list, perhaps a generic short page)
    • Glossary
    • IMS Content package
    • Lesson - almost unique
    • Quiz - almost unique
    • Page
    • File
    • URL

--chris collman 00:39, 13 October 2011 (WST)

I also liked the idea of a site default settings section, but it seems most of the contents fit better elsewhere, and so I have deleted it. Hope you're not too disappointed Chris ;-) --Helen Foster 18:42, 26 October 2011 (WST)


I see the Blocks template only has the navtrail. I wonder if we can group Blocks together so the list is not so long and in something rather than strictly alpha (close to random) order. Then the Block template would show fewer entries and readers could drill down. --chris collman 21:02, 2 October 2011 (WST)

Chris, sorry it took me so long to realise my mistake in missing the list of blocks from the blocks template! How do you think the block pages look now? The only problem I think with grouping blocks together is coming up with short titles for the groups. --Helen Foster 16:48, 4 October 2011 (WST)

Student information

One of Moodle Docs weakness is our lack of documentation for the student. Students might need to know some basics, just like teachers. --chris collman 19:38, 3 October 2011 (WST)

Hi Chris, I've always understood that we're trying to develop Moodle to be user-friendly enough to make documentation for students unnecessary apart from one or two help popups. However I must confess I still don't understand security keys ;-) --Helen Foster 16:53, 4 October 2011 (WST)
LOL, I guess I was a little strong, but I do think a short template and link with these things might assist teachers in educating their students. As for session keys, I would like to see a specific example of an outside application because I am with you! --chris collman 22:28, 4 October 2011 (WST)

My Profile settings

"My Profile" is in the sitewide settings template that has site administrator focus. There are 5 links that appear under the My Profile settings link.--chris collman 19:38, 3 October 2011 (WST)

  • Edit profile
  • Change password
  • Security keys
  • Messaging
  • Blogs

My Moodle

"My Moodle" is in the sitewide settings template that has site administrator focus.--chris collman 19:38, 3 October 2011 (WST)

  • My home page
  • Customization my home page
  • My private files

Basic Moodle skills

These pages are probably covered by the teacher or in orientation for the student --chris collman 19:38, 3 October 2011 (WST)

  • Text editor
  • File uploading


Just remembered -noticed - there are two "Notifications" in site admin - the one which lets you see new modules are installed correctly.your cron status and Moodle version and the other one in Security for log in failures. Neither is in this TOC anywhere :(--Mary Cooch 18:04, 6 October 2011 (WST)
