Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Tags.

From Moodle 1.9 onwards, users are able to tag themselves and create interest pages around those tags.

Enabling tag functionality

To enable site-wide tag functionality, check the "Enable tags functionality" box in Administration > Security > Site policies.

Describing your interests

Tags allows you to describe your interests in a way that is easy for people with similar interests to find you. To tell everyone what your interests are, go to your profile editing page and enter your interests/tags separated by commas. If a tag you entered already exists, you get associated to that tag. If it does not, a new tag will be created (if you have the capability to create new tags).

Tag pages

Each tag in moodle has a page associated with it. The tag page brings together users, information and resources related to that tag. A tag has a description, links to related tags, a list of users associated with that tag and moodle blocks with resources related to it.

  • If the user has the capability to edit tags, a link "Edit this tag" will appear in the tag page. By clicking on it, you will get redirect to the tag editing page.
  • If the tag name or its content is inappropriate, a user may click on the "Flag as inappropriate" link to report that. This will allow those responsible for maintaining the good use of the tags functionality to take appropriate action, such as deleting the tag. See Managing tags.
  • If the user has the capability to edit blocks, he will be able to change the configuration of the blocks that appear on the tag page.
