The turning editing on option can be found as a link in the administration block or as a button at the top right of a course homepage. This option is only available to teachers of the course who also have editing rights or to those users who are assigned site administration rights. Turn editing on allows teachers to change the appearance and funcionality of the course.


When editing is course elements can be added, edited, moved or deleted.

Existing blocks can be moved up, down or sent to the right or left column of the course. They can also be set to visible or hidden. They can be removed completely by pressing the X icon.

Topics or weeks (either casn also be refered to as sections) can be moved up or down to change the order in which the course is dispayed. Sections can also be hidden from, or made visible to, learners. If the course is topic based then a topic can be set as current (or indeed the current status can be removed).
