Site Administration > Appearance > Navigation

Setting My Moodle as the default page site-wide

Log in to your Moodle site. Type the word "my" at the end of the URL in the URL window. Click your return button.

This will take you to your "My Moodle" Page.

Sticky blocks in My Moodle

An administrator can choose which blocks appear on the My Moodle page i.e. sticky blocks as follows:

  1. Access Site administration > Appearance > Default My Moodle page.
  2. Select the required blocks from the "Add a block" drop-down menu. Configure each block as desired.
  3. Reposition blocks using the arrow icons in the block headers.
