The Administration block provides context-sensitive links to settings pages. See the screencast: [http://youtu.be/XHyrXxnMrdE The Administration block]
  
The settings block is new to Moodle 2.0.  It can be found on most pages in the left column. It is composed of links to sub menus.  When the link is clicked the sub menu expands below it.

What appears in the Administration block depends upon the [[Context]] (Page being shown and user's permissions). For example, a site administrator on the front page will have Front page settings while a teacher in a course will have more options in Course administration than a student.
  
Many of the sub menus have the same functions as older versions of Moodle.

The Administration block provides context-sensitive links to settings pages. See the screencast: The Administration block
